News from Rijks Private Cellar / Rijks Estate !
At the 15th Michelangelo International Wine Awards in Cape Town, Rijks was once again among the top performing wineries in South Africa with two Double Gold and three Gold medals for their wines. In the 10 years Rijks has entered the competition, they have won the Trophy for the best wine on the competition three times.
Double Gold went to Rijks Private Cellar Pinotage 2007 for this world class benchmark Pinotage and to Rijks Pinotage Reserve 2007.
Gold medals went to Rijks Private Cellar Shiraz 2006, as well as Rijks Estate Syrah and The Master 2007.
Unfortunately we only have the latter two wines, the Rijks Estate Syrah and The Master, available at this time and are glad to offer you our residual stock at EUR 29,95. The good news is, that we still carry a number of Michelangelo Double Gold winners from previous years i.e. the Rijks Private Cellar Shiraz 2004 at EUR 21,95, the Rijks Private Cellar Cabernet Sauvignon 2004 at EUR 19,95 as well as the Pinotage Reserve 2006 at EUR 24,95.

October 3, 2010:
Our September tasting of Rijk’s and Vergelegen wines revealed a number of interesting wines and lots of lively discussions among our guests. Rijk’s wines’ first appearance on the Luxembourg market was very positively received. The bestselling wines that evening being Rijk’s Private Cellar BRAVADO, Rijk’s Estate THE MASTER and Rijk’s Private Cellar CHENIN BLANC. Definitely a winery to keep an eye on.
July 2010 :
We are proud to announce that we have been able to add RIJK’s Private Cellar and RIJK’S Estate wines to our selection of South African wines. Though established only in 1996 in the splendor and scenic beauty of the Tulbagh valley, RIJK’S wines have been rewarded by an impressive array of accolades over the years, amassing almost all the honors a winery could get. Please refer to the “our wines” section for details on the wines we carry.
We would also like to draw your attention to the fact that we received a new delivery from VERGELEGEN and are thus again in the position to offer you the largest part of the VERGELEGEN range including the Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay Reserve wines, the White Blend, the red blends Cabernet / Merlot, Vergelegen Red and V, as well as the Shiraz, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon.
