Norma Ratcliffe will join us again this year, her second year as Chairperson of the Judging Panel. Norma is a true pioneer in the SA Wine industry. She was one of the first women to make wine in South Africa. Her illustrious career has seen her become the first female member of the Cape Winemakers’ Guild, Chairperson of the Cape Winemakers’ Guild and a passionate advocate of its Protégé Programme.
She has also achieved recognition for the iconic Warwick Wine brands she created and was chosen as Exporter of the Year by the SA Chamber of Commerce. She has inspired a generation of young female winemakers in South Africa and, as a trailblazer in all things wine, being ahead of the curve has always come naturally to her. It’s a huge pleasure and honour to have Norma join us for Rosé Rocks judging panel.
