A certification seal appears on each container of wine or estate brandy which has been certified by the Wine and Spirit Board.

This seal is a guarantee of origin, vintage and variety as stated on the wine label.

Certification/IPW Seal

This seal is also a guarantee that the wine complies with IPW criteria.

The 'A' number is found on the label of both certified and uncertified wines and provides information on the responsible seller.
