Top 100 Wine List Awards 2012

I recently judged the value component of the Top 100 SA Wine Lists competition. You may have seen my previous post with my thoughts on the competition in general. I’m not going to repeat myself, but now that the competition is over I will say that I’m happy with the way it was run and think it will grow every year.
