By , 3 April 2024

The modern era of South African wine, which has been underway for the last three decades or so, has seen some extraordinary quality gains but who’s going to ensure that we continue to move forward?

The aim of the Next Generation Awards sponsored by FedEx Express is to identify South Africa’s emerging winemaking talent. Entrants may not be over 35 years of age at the time of the awards ceremony on 11 June.

At the awards, the Top 10 participants will be announced and the best overall will receive a prize of R10,000.

Wines will be tasted blind by a three-person panel with editor Christian Eedes as chairman as well as Spencer Fondaumiere, chairman of the South African Sommelier Association and wine writer Malu Lambert.

Entries close on Wednesday, 22 May. For the rules and entry form, click here.
