The M&F Agri Wellington Wine Route, winner of the SA Terroir Top Wine Area 2010  would like to invite ALL Wellington producers (members as well as non-members)  to participate in the 7th Wellington Wine Route Quest for the Best  - the quest to find the very best of Wellington.



Ø  Primarily: To identify the top 10 wines and Top Spirit (if there are enough entries to warrant such a title) of Wellington and to market the best of Wellington to the media, opinion-formers and trade in Cape Town, Durban, Johannesburg and beyond.

Ø  Secondarily: To identify stand-out wines, lead varietals and styles and assess the overall quality of wines that originate from Wellington grapes, with a view to stimulate debate. All data obtained in the competition will be used to determine a profile of the wines of Wellington and will be managed by Francois van Niekerk, Technical member of the committee.



· Judging will happen on 21 July  2016 and will be conducted by a panel of five selected from media, viticulturists and winemakers.  No Wellington winemakers will be included in the tasting process.

· Wines will be rated on a 20 point scale, labels out of sight and the quality gauge for the 20 point scoring system will be accepted as follows: 17-20 Outstanding.

· The spirits (if any entered) will be judged by the same panel.
