SA Wine Legends: Madame May-Eliane de Lencquesaing

The many lives of Madame. When Madame May-Eliane de Lencquesaing, matriarch and founder of Glenelly Estate in Stellenbosch, won the Lifetime Achievement Award at International Wine Challenge (IWC) Awards 2017—they should have given her a few trophies for all of the lifetimes she’s lived. Born into one Bordeaux's oldest wine families, the Miailhe, Lady May as she’s fondly known, has lived through World War 2, has been an army wife in Kansas; and at the age of 78, bought a fruit farm in Stellenbosch and starting planting vines on the slopes of the Simonsberg.

Harvest 2020 in South Africa looks promising

Harvest 2020 in South Africa looks promising

All producers we met on our wine tour in mid-February were, so far, happy with the quality and most of them also with the quantity. After the drought the quantities are now again back to more or less normal. The drought the past three years is over but water is still a scarce resource and visitors are encouraged not to waste water unnecessarily.

Video: Eben Sadie on viticulture

Ring and I visit Eben Sadie at his farm in the Swartland, in South Africa. In the past Eben has been buying grapes from top vineyards, but for the last few years he has been a vineyard owner, and has some very interesting things to say about viticulture.

Argentina’s Domaine Bousquet Is One Of The Leaders Of Organic And Non-Sulfite Wines

The growth and acceptance of Argentinean wines in the global market, despite the country’s boom-or-bust economy, is largely the result of investments made and vineyards planted just in the past 20 years. Today Argentina is the world’s fifth largest wine producer (after France, Italy, Spain and the U.S.), with more than 900 wineries and 17,000 producers. Total exports in 2019 were 19 million cases totaling $700 million.

Tim James: Art and wine – and money

Tim James: Art and wine – and money

The eminent art critic Robert Hughes was no friend to the business side of art – which was becoming even bigger business in the last quarter of the 20th century, when he was doing much of his writing. Nearly 30 years ago, for example, he wrote that: “The art market boom has been an unmitigated disaster for the public life of art. It has distorted the ground of people’s reaction to painting and sculpture. Thirty or even twenty years ago anyone, amateur or expert, could spend an hour or two in a museum without wondering what [an artwork] might cost at auction”; but now, he continues, “the imagery of money has been so crudely riveted onto the face of museum-quality art … that its unhappy confusion between price and value may never be resolved.”

SA Wine History: On South Africa’s wine lake (and how it was drained)

“In the early days South Africa actually had too much wine. Sources mention there was even a wine lake.”

So wrote Mark Stock in his Quick and Easy Guide to South African Wine, published by The Manuel last month.

Was this true, asked Bubbles Hyland of Well Red Wine Magazine via Twitter, to which my answer was in the affirmative, based on my general awareness that the Koöperatieve Wijnbouwers Vereniging van Suid-Afrika (KWV) had been formed to deal with a wine surplus.

Winter fermented Sauvignon Blanc – Innovation giving South African wineries an edge

Fresh aromatics are among the most sought-after qualities in wine. In South Africa, some wineries have taken the quest for freshness literally, by freezing the juice. Consultant oenologist and researcher Dr. Carien Coetzee explains how successful they have been.

Argentina's White Wine Revolution

In the spiritual homeland of Malbec, many of the most innovative new wines being produced today are white. One might be forgiven for thinking that winemakers are being deliberately contrary; however, over the past decade and a half, underneath wave after wave of reds, a revolution has been simmering away quietly. Chardonnays and Sémillons are now being produced that are every bit as good as some of the best Malbecs in the country.

South Africa – a social progress report

South Africa of course has had further to travel than most countries in any attempt at racial equality because it inherited the hangover from apartheid whereby all the menial jobs, including vineyard work, were done by poorly paid Blacks, a term which in South Africa officially includes the people once known as Cape Coloureds as well as Indians and, more recently, Chinese.

SA wine history: Behind every great winemaker at Zonnebloem was Marie Furter

SA wine history: Behind every great winemaker at Zonnebloem was Marie Furter

‘South Africa cannot afford to lose men like John de Villiers,’ is what the Sunday Times wrote about the owner of Zonnebloem wine farm in Simondium following his death in a car crash on 7 July 1948. ‘Politicians may come and go, and millionaires may make their millions, but those who produce perfection from our own soil are of rarity beyond price. [De Villiers] sought no great wealth; he loved the age-old art of wine-making and strove to make it even better. His great ambition was to make a wine typical of South Africa and distinct from any made overseas.’
