Glenwood vineyards and mountains, Franschhoek

DP Burger at Glenwood Vineyards in Franschhoek, South Africa, interview and videos

Franschhoek can almost be too quaint, too pretty as a wine region. The wineries are dotted along the main road – the only road – along the valley like pearls on a string. They are surrounded by beautiful real estate developments where the villas have stunning views over the mountains. […]

Indigena from Pares Balta

Indigena Garnacha 2012, Parés Baltà, Penedès, Catalonia, Spain | Britt’s Wine of the Month

One of our favourites in Penedès is Parés Baltà, an organic and biodynamic estate (certified Demeter), run by the brothers Joan and Josep Cusiné. But the winemakers are their wives, Elena Jiménez and Marta Casas. I fell for this wine, Indigena Garnacha 2012, immediately. It is well built, quite powerful, […]

Ntsiki Biyela, the first black female winemaker in South Africa

It is not that much of an exaggeration to say that Ntsiki Biyela is a South African winemaking legend. She was the first female black winemaker and has been featured for example on CNN and on Forbes (and on BKWine Magazine previously). After many years as winemaker at Stellekaya in […]

Proposals for new rules for organic wines upset the wine growers

The EU rules for organic farming are being reviewed and discussions are apparently in the final phase. Several proposals have upset the French (and also other countries’) organic growers.

Superlatives, thirst wines, and ad masquerades | New Brief out, #167 | The Wine Newsletter

Superlatives, thirst wines, and ad masquerades If wine adverts (all too often masquerading as “journalism”) are to be believed all wines are fantastic, perfectly balanced and go with everything, from tapas to tandoori chicken. I agree that a wine can be appreciated regardless of price; it all depends on the […]
