Wine Writer Confidential | № 9

Welcome to my latest installment of Wine Writer Confidential.

“Drinking will continue until morale improves….”

I don’t know about you, but the first half of 2017 has been a blur, with more tours and tastings to come…

Wines of South Africa.

Wines of South Africa

I’m currently at work on a series of artisan winemaker interviews for Paris-based BKWine Magazine made possible by the Wines of South Africa (WOSA).

These interviews grew out of a previously slated trip to South Africa in February 2017 with BK Wine Tours, which unexpectedly conflicted with me winning a Fellowship to the 2017 Professional Wine Writers Symposium at Meadowood Napa Valley.

Since I couldn’t make the trip to South Africa, WOSA graciously offered to host a series of interviews via Skype with three of the country’s top artisan winemakers. Each winemaker brings a unique perspective to winemaking in South Africa today, particularly with regard to the topics of terroir, technique, and global perceptions. You may subscribe to my site for future details about the winemakers profiled.
