“Conservation is something that is extremely important to us as a family,” says Hein Koegelenberg, CEO of La Motte. “The legacy that Dr. Rupert left us is one with a strong conservation leaning, and we are extremely proud that our efforts to uphold this are being recognized.”

“Since the inception of these awards, our primary objective has been to recognise and reward those wine producers in our country that put the well-being of the environment, the planet, and its people first,” said Sydney Mbhele, Divisional Executive for Integrated Marketing at Nedbank. “We therefore applaud each and every entry received in this year’s Green Wine Awards. While only one winner could be selected today, we appreciate all of the efforts that have been undertaken by local winemakers and their investment in sustainable business practices so that the green wines of today can be enjoyed by the generations of tomorrow.”
