Marthélize Tredoux: On food, copyright and trademarks

A recent back-and-forth on Twitter between some winos and chef-types (see here) piqued my interest around the issue of protecting food (and, specifically signature plating) in terms of intellectual property. The conversation began with the question of whether or not restaurants should allow customers to take pictures of dishes. This led to comments around how […]

Marthélize Tredoux: SA wine needs to boost its sex appeal

In January of this year, our industry was told point blank that as far as the world is concerned, our image isn’t sexy. Brand SA isn’t sexy. Our wines aren’t thought of as sexy. An unfortunate sentiment. But not surprising. I’ve seen what the world sees. I’ve seen what we pump out to the globe […]

Marthélize Tredoux: Wine and the greater fool theory

I am a bit of a series nut. I’ll watch just about anything. And oddly, despite the fact that real politics bores me to tears, I love a good political drama. The West Wing. House of Cards. And The Newsroom (which was strictly speaking probably not political but close enough). I binge-watched The Newsroom again […]

Marthélize Tredoux: The Millennials are coming

As we slide into February, recovering from the wave of prediction posts that decorate blogs and websites through January like tinsel decorates Christmas trees, most of us are nonetheless still thinking about the year ahead in one way or another. Some are preoccupied with harvest activities, others just generally planning and strategizing for surviving the […]

Marthélize Tredoux: The VinPro Information Day – more of the same?

My previous post (see here) was a prelude to the annual VinPro Information Day and it just feels neat and tidy to do a post-mortem after the fact. More than 700 attendees from all corners of the wine industry descended upon the CTICC last Thursday for what many consider our industry “state of the nation”. […]

Marthélize Tredoux: The significance of the VinPro Information Day

It’s back to work and back to normality for most of us this week. The normalcy of the daily grind has mostly returned but for some there is the frenzied excitement of the harvest which has already started. A further sign of the new year in wine industry circles is the Nedbank VinPro Information Day. […]

Marthélize Tredoux: My Christmas wishlist

The season to be merry is upon us and as the tinsel comes out, so does the endless barrage of lists and posts looking back on the year. Some are delightful. Most are drivel. But I’ve never been one to avoid the mainstream so I thought I’d end off the year with my own little […]

Marthélize Tredoux: In praise of lighter reds and rosé

I don’t mind sharing with you that last week was arguably the crappiest of the entire year so far. I’d compare the last couple of days to a papercut. Between your toes. Nothing that would kill you but unbearable, unpleasant and downright unnecessary. But I won’t turn the post into a diary entry of a […]
