The Bollinger Exceptional Wine Service Award has been established to bring focus and recognition of achievement to the growing group of professional wine waiters in South Africa.

It serves to advance the interests of fine wine producers as well as those who make their living from the sale of wine in the hospitality industry, be it in establishments such as hotels, lodges or restaurants.

The winner of the 2014 Bollinger Exceptional Wine Service Award is: Gareth Ferreira
