The wonder of Cape Wine 2018 and The Old Vine Project has journeyed to WANDS magazine, “The International Wine & Spirits Magazine For The Trade In Japan.”, in their December 2018 publication.
The eyes of the wine world were focussed on South Africa during the triennial CapeWine, hosted at the CTICC from 12 -14 September 2018. A total of 2 414 international and local guests registered their attendance to experience wines from 352 producers.
“Hannuwa”, the overall theme of this year’s show, is a 200 000 year-old Khoi San word which describes the harmony between man and the land from which is harvested. This concept resonates with the Old Vine Project’s cause to protect old vines and to produce wines that reflect the earth and terroir they grow in.
André Morgenthal showcased a selection of old vine wines at the Old Vine Project stand. The Old Vine Project seminar, one of the few and also the first seminar of the show, was attended by members if the international and local trade and media.
Here are the extracts of the publication in WANDS magazine.
