The recently launched 2023 edition of Platter’s SA Wine Guide has honoured Trade Winds Wine with one of the highest accolades bestowed by the popular wine annual, that of Platter’s 2023 Newcomer Winery of the Year.
Trade Winds’ heritage reflects the adventures of its founders, Martin Voigt and Richard Wells, friends and long-time wine aficionados. They wanted a brand name which embodied an exciting and trusted choice in high quality wines. As an international aviator, Martin spent many hours navigating over the oceans of the world, contemplating the voyages of mariners in the days of sail when the most critical and reliable of the elements affecting their explorations were the trade winds. Capturing this essence of reliability and adventure, the brand seeks to inspire your very own wine journey of discovery. With decades of experience in the wine industry, Honorary Cape Wine Master and Master Blender Colin Frith, has long term relationships with several wine estates. Based in Stellenbosch, every season he tastes and selects to source produce for the specific balance in wine profile he is seeking to so expertly create.
We are happy to be one of the few portals where you can buy their wines online. It is indeed rare to find outstanding and recognised quality wines at such great value.
