Checkers Nedbank Green Wine Give Away

I have one bottle of organic wine to give away, thanks to Checkers South Africa. I also have two bottles of wine to taste at home and I cannot wait to get them open.

Information from the official media release:
Eco-friendly, sustainably aware, socially conscious and fine wines is the order of the day. Sustainable wine-making is more than a buzzword; it’s an environmental philosophy that aims to transform a successful wine industry into one where man and nature thrive. Local wine farms have listened and it’s this commitment to greener wine production and sustainable farming practices that was celebrated at the Nedbank Green Wine Awards 2013. The winners were announced on 17 October at Moyo restaurant in the 100-year-old Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens in Cape Town.

The Green Wines were judged in two categories, which received 133 entries: the Best Wines made from Organically Grown Grapes (this included biodynamic wines), and the Best wines certified under the Biodiversity and Wine Initiative. These wines went through a blind judging process by a panel led by internationally experienced Fiona McDonald, where it was emphasised that consumers expect green wines to deliver on quality. As one panellist commented, ‘Nowadays these wines are working on merit, not because they are green, BWI or organic. Diners might order the first bottle because of the organic novelty value, but the second bottle is sent for because they enjoyed drinking the first.’
