The Old Mutual Trophy Wine Show 2021

The judging of the Old Mutual Trophy Wine Show competition has always been at the Grande Roche hotel in Paarl. This year in a Covid related change, the judging was moved to central Cape Town and it took place at The Westin Cape Town from 31st May to 4th June

The panel would normally comprise three international and six local judges covering a broad range of wine tasting experience, expertise and working with a 100-point scoring system. This year, as in 2020, the panels comprise 100% South African experts. The panel has been chaired by leading wine authority Michael Fridjhon since the inception of the show in 2002

The Judges: 

Back Row: Fran├žois Rautenbach, Spencer Fondaumiere, Cathy van Zyl MW, Heidi Duminy CWM,  Christian EedesJD Pretorius

In front: associate judge Malu Lambert and judge Patson Mathonsi with convenor and chair Michael Fridjhon, James Pietersen and Narina Cloete

There is a host of detailed information and interviews with Michael Fridjhon and the judges on the website at

The results will be announced later, probably in or around July this year
