Old Mutual, an international investment, savings, insurance and banking Group, has been the headline sponsor of the Old Mutual Trophy Wine Show since its inception in 2002.

While we see great value in a process which identifies the country’s top wines, we believe that skills development should be an important element of all our sponsorships. Through our involvement with the Trophy Wine Show we are able to support the Wine Judging Academy, run in conjunction with the University of Cape Town’s Graduate School of Business, and dedicated to training world-class wine judges.

We are excited to play an important role in discovering talent across the wine industry and highlighting it both locally and on the international stage. Recognising the importance of the rigour which goes into the Show’s judging methodology, we take the top wines on a national roadshow to introduce them to discerning wine lovers in eight cities in Southern Africa.

Listed in the Entry Kit is all you need to know about the show’s rules and guidelines.

The judging panel is chaired by Michael Fridjhon. Read more about the International, National and Associate judges and the judging process which takes place from 4 to 7 May in Paarl.

This prestigious wine competition includes two Public Tasting events, held annually in Johannesburg and Cape Town in June.

Old Mutual will this year replace the printed Icons Guide which details the results of the show by category and producer with a downloadable app which will go live immediately after the final results have been announced at the function. This will enable all smartphone-users to access the key information they will need to optimise their wine-purchasing decisions – at restaurants and wine merchants.

May 18, 2015 For people living in Europe at the time, the assassination of the Archduke Franz Ferdinand in Sarajevo in June 1914 did not appear to have made the Great War inevitable, yet by early August the major powers had passed from sabre-rattling to all-out conflict. The situation had been hovering perilously close to a conflagration for some time and almost any crisis might have done the trick. This is all clear…
