“Our success is due to good long term planning and cooperation between our growers our viticulturist our winemaking team and our customers” – Abé Rossouw

While a great wine ends in the bottle it ultimately starts in the vineyard and we believe that recognition should be given where it is due.  With this philosophy in mind Roodezandt began issuing a “Certificate of Merit” to producers for quality grapes delivered to our cellar.  Only vineyards from which exceptional quality wines are made are taken into account when deliberating each year’s winner.

The 2020 Certificate of Merit was awarded to two producers, namely.  Mr. W.J. de Wet from the farm Wel van Pas and Mr. F.J. Roux form the farm Hokaai for Chenin Blanc grapes that produced the Champion Chenin Blanc at the Robertson Young Wine Show and runner up in the National Young Wine Show 2020.
