Winetech and Vinpro are looking for the best vineyard block in the region, and invite producers to participate in the 2019 Block Competition.

Each region selects a theme relevant to the area:
Paarl/Swartland: Any block that has been harvested at least three times
Stellenbosch: Any premium cultivar
Olifants River: Any cultivar and any wine goal
Worcester/Breedekloof: Any premium cultivar
Robertson: Any vineyard block

Vineyard blocks are evaluated in the second week of January 2019 by an independent panel of judges, and the evaluation takes the wine goal into account for all entries. The winning blocks will be visited in the fourth week of January during which the prizes are presented and the winning block is discussed.

The Winetech Vinpro Block Competition aims to give recognition to our producers’ best practices, share the latest technology with the rest of the industry and create a networking opportunity for producers, input suppliers and sponsors. There are also big prizes up for grabs.

ENTER BEFORE 30 NOVEMBER 2018. (Entry is free)
