■ Two of the 16 regional Prestige Agri Awards winners hail from the Boland: Joseph Muller, who is the production manager at Meerlust Wine Estate in Stellenbosch, and Christie Davids from Anthonij Rupert Farms in Franschhoek. Winners of the regional awards receive a cash prize, a certificate, trophy and Shoprite vouchers. They will also go on to compete at provincial level during an adjudication process this month, with the awards to be held in November, where the overall winner, the Western Cape Prestige Agri Worker for 2018, will be announced. The overall winner gets a cash prize, an overseas trip, Shoprite vouchers, data and a place on the Prestige Agri Worker Forum which meets with MEC Alan Winde each quarter to discuss agri worker, as well as sector related issues.
