Platter Guide 2020


The 40th Anniversary Edition 

Since its inception in 1980, Platters has offered rich detail on most of the wineries and individual wines produced in the country, as well as useful information for learning about wine and travelling in the winelands. This makes it a book that appeals to wine experts as much as anyone wanting to uncover more about our country’s delightful wines, wine cellars and regions. After 40 years, this proudly independent guide has become an institution in South Africa and highly respected around the globe, with two Best Wine Guide Worldwide awards to its credit.

In the 2020 edition, a total of 125 wines and one brandy achieved the coveted 5-star (95+ point) rating.

Editors Award Winery of the Year  – Boekenhoutskloof Winery

Newcomer Winery of the Year – Pieter Ferreira Cap Classique

Top Performing Winery of the Year – Mullineux (4th time as Platter’s Winery of the Year) (Five 5-star ratings plus two Wines of the Year – their Granite Syrah 2017 and Straw Wine 2018)
