The Michelangelo International Wine and Spirits Awards is the only international wine competition in South Africa. It is judged by wine experts who are hand picked to represent all the wine producing and wine drinking regions of the world. This year’s panel of 22 judges included experts from the United Kingdom, Argentina, Bulgaria, Chile, France, Israel, Italy, Japan, Slovakia, Spain, Sweden, Netherlands and Denmark. Entries are judged blind by panels of five judges, using the 100-point International Organisation of Vine and Wine (OIV) system.

Best farm? Naturally!

On the subject of awards, we’re happy to report that Org de Rac won an award for the “Best Performing Farm” in the Swartland category of the annual Western Cape Prestige Agri Awards. A proud Marius Kotze, Org de Rac viticulturist, is pictured with the award. Thys September received the prize for Best Junior Farm Manager.


In life, there are a few things that just go together: fish and chips, cheese and wine, and oysters and Org de Rac Cuvée La Verne Méthode Cap Classique!

If you don’t believe us, come and try this heavenly pairing for yourself. From this month, Org de Rac is offering visitors to the estate the opportunity to enjoy fresh West Coast oysters and Org de Rac’s truly sublime Cuvée La Verne MCC together, as they should be.

If you need any encouragement, just think of the words of the inimitable Oscar Wilde who said: “The only way to get rid of temptation is to yield to it.”
