Mensa and MAN Family Wines has been lauded on the international stage with Gold medals at the 2018 Women’s Wine & Spirits Awards (WWSA) in London.

The award winning Mensa Chardonnay Pinot Noir 2018 is part of the new Mensa range just launched by Overhex Wines International, takES storytelling and consumer engagement to the next level through digital innovation. MAN Family Wines’ Skaapveld Shiraz, Warrelwind Sauvignon Blanc and stark-Conde Vineyard Selection Chenin Blanc all won gold medals while its Stark-Conde Vineyard Selection Cabernet Sauvignon took home a silver medal.

The WWSA is considered the world’s most important wine & spirits competition judged by women with the judging panel comprising 100 of the most influential female wine buyers around the globe. The organisers maintain that women purchase 80% of all wine and should therefore be the prime target for smart wine marketing.

“Launched as the ultimate book club wine supported by cutting edge digital technology, Mensa certainly ticks this box. This seal of approval by the most influential wine buyers in the world is all the proof we need that we are on the right track with our new Mensa range,” says Gerhard van der Wath, owner and chairman of Overhex Wines International.

Over 1 000 wines from 38 countries around the world participated in the 2018 WWSA.
