    Why doesn’t someone sell a case of all the winners ? Why is there no marketing of these wines? Why simply a function for the winners :-) the usual suspects :-( and nothing else? Why not bring a tasting to Joburg. ABSA you should know better and leverage your sponsorship. Pathetic.

      Hi Jeremy,

      The Top 10 wines are available in an exclusive wooden box from Wine of the month club. ABSA and the Pinotage Association will also be doing the Pinotage roadshow to JHB, KZN and PE soon. Send me your details and I will keep you updated on all the events.

      Cheers
