Badsberg are a quiet producer of excellent wines, so proven by the continuous number of Young Wine Show awards they win. Since 2005 they have won the prestigious Pietman Hugo Award 7 times!
The Young Wine Show is a good indicator to the larger producers of the type of wines being produced, and to be a consistent winner of these awards means they are doing something right!
Henri Swiegers, winemaker at Badsberg, proudly tells me that they make 30 million litres of wine at their facility, a lot of which goes into bulk wine sold to other producers, but the point is that it is good wine and hopefully also raising the quality and perception of South African wine.
The Breederivier Valley was well represented by Du Toitskloof Cellar with their Du Toitskloof Cellar Red Muscadel 2014 being awarded platinum a second year running.
