The Platter’s Guide was first released in 1980 and is widely considered the go-to guide for South African wines – alongside Tim Atkin’s MW annual South Africa Report. South Africa’s answer to Hugh Johnson’s Pocket Wine Book, year after year Platter and his team manage to cram over 8000 wines from this rich and varied region into this miniature manual.


With 950 reviewed producers, they represent the top 10% of South Africa winemakers.

In the press

"If anything can be said to create a buzz in the South African wine industry, it's the annual announcement of the Platter's Wine Guide's 5 Star Wines... Platter's is a very good annual overview - indeed it's hard to think of a better comparable guide published anywhere in the world - and it takes its task seriously." Tim Atkin, MW
