Make some more space in the trophy cabinet because the Cape can add best winemaker in the world 2015 to its list of bragging rights. Abrie Beeslaar from Kanonkop near Stellenbosch was named as International Winemaker of the Year for 2015 at the prestigious International Wine and Spirit Competition awards in London a few days ago. The awards are considered one of the highest honours in the industry.
South Africa also won several other awards at the competition including best pinotage, the Kanonkop 2012, best Riesling, best chardonnay and best chenin blanc.
