  • I would like to acknowledge the help and support of WOSA in funding an extensive, two-week research trip to the Cape in May 2015.SiobhanThompson,AndréMorgenthalandSarahPapenfusare part of a fantastic team who make my trips to South Africa run smoothly, organising visits and sourcing samples at the last minute. A big thumbs up to John Hartley at Go Cape, who drove me around the Winelands, shared his knowledge of the local scene and let me piggy back on his roaming package. Back in London, Claudia Brown andJoWehringofWOSAUKorganisedatastingofbrandedwinesatshortnoticeandThorGudmondssonofGudfishshowedmealine up from some of the young guns. I would also like to thank all the South African producers who opened bottles, showed me their vineyards and shared their hopes and dreams with me. Visiting your country is always a pleasure.
