Entries for the 24rd edition of South Africa’s largest drinks competition - the Michelangelo International Wine and Spirits Awards is officially open! Entries close on Friday, 31 July.

The Michelangelo International Wine & Spirits Awards was established in 1997 to offer South African producers the opportunity of having their wines adjudicated locally by a highly experienced and respected panel of professionals from around the globe. Our primary objective was – and to a great extent still remains – to support local wine and spirits producers who are targeting international markets for exports and, through our international judges, are able to determine whether their wines will be well received both abroad and locally.

All judges are hand-picked and serve on the panel by invitation only.

  • Competition opens for online entries: Monday 1 June
  • Deliveries of wine samples: Monday 13 July – Friday 31 July at Longridge Wine Estate
  • Judges tasting: Monday 17 August to Saturday 22 August
  • Awards ceremony: Friday 2 October at Tsogo Cape Sun, Cape Town
