10th consecutive ‘Diamond’ Award for Kievits Kroon’s winelist

Kievits Kroon has won its 10th consecutive Diamond Award in the 2018 Diners Club International Winelist of the Year Awards.

The Diamond Award is the highest accolade and is given to wine lists with a total score of 91% or higher. The other categories are Silver, Gold, and Platinum. This year there were just 16 Diamond Award winners in Gauteng (of which eight are in Pretoria), five in KwaZulu-Natal, 12 in the Western Cape, and eight in Southern Cape.

Started more than 20 years ago, the Awards are a sought-after symbol of excellence and achievement among restaurateurs. Being able to boast a Winelist Award is prestigious confirmation that the establishment has a fine and well thought-out wine list that compliments the menu. And to anyone who has discovered the symbiotic joy of well-matched food and wine, that’s a big plus for the restaurant.

Wine lists are evaluated according to content, balance, suitability and presentation, and judges are all experts in the restaurant and wine business, including reviewers, members of the media, chefs and sommeliers from the South African Sommeliers Association. The judging panel was convened and headed by Platter’s Guide publisher Jean-Pierre Rossouw.

Says Rossouw: “The Diamond award is becoming a more and more prestigious achievement and we congratulate the entrants that offer diners high quality winelists.”

With its lush landscaped lawns and planted rose gardens, lovingly cared for by a dedicated team of gardeners, it is not difficult to believe that you are visiting a beautiful estate in the winelands when you stay at Kievits Kroon.

In 2011, Kievits Kroon took this relationship with the Cape one step further by launching its own red and white wines made from grapes cultured in the Cape. In 2014 Kievits Kroon launched a Cap Classique.  The wines are included on the estate’s award-winning wine list.
