The results of the 2020 Old Mutual Trophy Wine Show were announced by way of a unique online presentation, timed to coincide with their publication (on the website and on the Old Mutual Trophy Wine Show App). The virtual awards function detailed the key results from the 19th edition of the Cape wine industry’s toughest – and most highly regarded – competition. Of the 747 wines judged from 161 producers, 39 gold medals were awarded. All Best-in-Class gold medallists emerged as trophy winners. In the end, 21 trophies, including the coveted Most Successful Producer of the Show, were unveiled in the presentation.

The 2020 results maintain the show’s tradition and have reinforced its talent-scouting reputation. While comfortably more than half of the trophy winners had previously taken home an award for a best-in-class wine, several stepped into the limelight for the first time.
