LORRAINE IMMELMAN

MICHELANGELO INTERNATIONAL WINE & SPIRIT AWARDS

Lorraine is the founder and owner of the Michelangelo International Wine & Spirits Awards, which was established in 1997 as the only international wine competition in SA. The competition is unique in that all judges are hand-picked wine experts, representing all seven continents around the globe. Since the start of the awards, more than 165 different judges from 43 countries have served on the panels. The organisation’s primary objective is to support local wine makers who are targeting international markets for exports and determine whether their wines will be well received both abroad and locally.
