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 […]

Marthélize Tredoux: On tasting room service

There is an issue that’s been causing me high blood pressure and a battered liver from all the therapeutic wine I’ve been caused to drink. It’s an issue relevant to the majority of our wineries: tasting rooms. Yes, our beloved tasting rooms, with their carefully cultivated ambience, normally in a setting of glorious natural beauty […]

Marthélize Tredoux: Time to think pink

I admit I’ve had a difficult relationship with rosé. I like to think of myself as an open-minded wino, a “don’t knock it ’til you’ve tried it” kind of girl. But for a long time rosé was my nemesis – no, my kryptonite. I had nothing against it in principle. It wasn’t even because of […]

Marthélize Tredoux: Yet more on wine scoring

Forgive me for raising the old chestnut of wines scores but there’s been a lot of chatter around the subject just recently. Some in anticipation of Tim Atkins’ SA Report that was released yesterday, some around Platter’s (the tasting panel have been at it for a while now) and some just general opinion. As expected […]

Marthélize Tredoux: Obligatory Women’s Month Post

Eagle-eyed readers that you are, you may have noticed that it’s Women’s Month in South Africa. Most of us were able to enjoy another indulgent long weekend courtesy of National Women’s Day on Sunday. I won’t go delving into the meaning of the day here. I think the significance of the historic march on the […]

Marthélize Tredoux: The role of the wine writer

Winter is a quiet time in the winelands; vines are resting and tasting rooms enjoy a brief respite from the mad rush of tourists that descend in warmer months. Nevertheless, the past few weeks have seen a bustle of “internal” activity – from judging wine competitions to award ceremonies. One such occasion was the Wineland […]
