Triton Express to Sponsor 2014 Winemakers’ Choice Awards

It is with great pleasure that Winemakers’ Choice announces that Triton Express will be joining their team as sponsor for the 2014 competition, scheduled for September of this year.

Established in 1987, Triton Express has grown from a modest business in Durban into a sophisticated nationwide operation, boasting the latest in technology and vehicles. The company currently provides express road freight distribution solutions for more than 2500 customers nationwide. With thirteen strategically located branches in South Africa’s major centres, and six cross-border branches located in Namibia, Swaziland, Mozambique, Zimbabwe and Botswana, Triton Express offers their customers comprehensive reach into Southern Africa. In addition to this, multiple outlying areas are catered for. Triton Express is a progressive company that believes in continual growth and improvement, and it is this adventurous spirit that has prompted its involvement with the Winemaker’s Choice competition.

The annual Winemakers’ Choice Awards is truly unique in the South African Wine industry in that it is the only wine show judged exclusively by winemakers, and representing all wine regions of South Africa. Only the top 10% of entries receive awards, which means that judging is strict and wines are awarded only on merit.  The Winemakers’ Choice team is dedicated to providing a competition that continues to uphold stringent standards, while providing a support base for all entrants.

The Winemakers’ Choice team are excited to be working so closely with Triton Express. Their sponsorship and involvement will allow the 2014 Winemakers’ Choice awards to be the best vintage yet. Entries are already open and judging will commence on 1 September.
