Seven of Stellar Winery’s organic wines received gold awards at this year’s Vitis Vinifera Awards. The wines that were awarded are their Woolworths Organic Chardonnay, Woolworths Organic Sauvignon Blanc, Woolworths Organic Merlot, Woolworths Organic Shiraz, The River’s End Pinot Noir, Running Duck Reserve Sauvignon/Semillon and Running Duck Reserve Cabernet/Pinotage.
Stellar Winery is situated in Vredendal and is the largest producer of organic wine in South Africa. The location of the winery sets them apart. The coastal location of their vineyards provides a unique cool climate that contributes to the excellent quality and taste of their products. They produce an extensive range of wines that are sold worldwide.
Vitis Vinifera awards wines based on their quality. Unlike other wine awards, they do not focus on wines that are in the ultra-premium segment of the market. Instead, they focus on wines that are easily accessible to consumers, thereby breaking the misconception that award-winning wines are reserved for wine connoisseurs only. These awards are truly driven by everyday wine consumers.
“It’s always exciting to receive some form of recognition for all the hard work that goes into the wine-making process. We’re especially excited about the awards that our Woolworths Organic range received, as it just goes to show that it is a range that is valued and enjoyed by the local wine patron. We’re very proud of the winemaking team and would also like to take the opportunity to thank Woolworths for their continued support. We look forward to the rest of the results in this award season,” said Stellar’s head of sales and exports, Jacques Skinner.
Stellar’s awarded wines from their Woolworths Organic range can be bought at any Woolworths Food store of via the Woolworths online shop. Wine-lovers can find their Running Duck and River’s End ranges via www.stellarorganics.co.za.
