The Old Vine Project (OVP) has been a game changer for South African wines. When viticulturalist Rosa Kruger began searching for old vines in remote areas of the Cape, and compiling a list of them, there was little information available; she drove herself around and wrote each vineyard down by hand. Fast forward to 2016 and the Old Vine Project was launched, Rosa was joined on her quest by Andre Morgenthal and the status of old vines in South Africa was formalised.
