Perdeberg Winery participated in 11 of the 41 categories in this year’s Veritas Awards and entered 12 wines, of which 10 reaped awards. This means that Perdeberg competed in 21% of all the categories and 83% of their entries were awarded.
Perdeberg’s CEO, Gerhard van der Watt explains: “The fact that a co-operative cellar’s popular/entry level Cabernet Sauvignon won a Double Gold makes a strong statement about the quality, as this range compares to much more expensive estate wines which also won Double Gold awards. Our Chenin Blanc, Soft Smooth Red and new comer, Chenin Sparkling also did really well. This gives consumers the confidence of purchasing quality products from Perdeberg.”
