Malu Lambert: Interview with Duncan Savage of Savage Wines

“Forklifts can come right to the door,” says Duncan Savage with a wide smile showing me around his urban cellar in Salt River. He’s as excited by this as if he’s just told me he’s off on a surf trip to Bali for the next six months. It’s understandable. Trusting your entire winemaking operation to […]

Malu Lambert: Interview with Corlea Fourie of Bosman Family Wines

Corlea Fourie knew she had something special with the Optenhorst Vineyard. Located on a hill of the Bosman Family Wines farm, the vineyard is watched over by the ‘W’ in the Wellington Mountains. Stocky, sturdy chenin blanc bush vines thrust out of the ground. There’s a graveyard-like stillness up here, a feeling brought on perhaps […]

Malu Lambert: Interview with Koen Roose of Spioenkop

Koen Roose is sitting inside his Elgin cellar at a wooden bench, stirring a bentonite mixture with an oversize whisk. I ask him what wine the fining agent is for. Cracking a big smile, he says “The Riesling 2017, can you believe it!” “Come, come,” he says in Flemish-accented English, hauling himself up and me […]

Malu Lambert: Interview with Rikus Neethling of Bizoe Wines

Malu Lambert: Interview with Miles Mossop of Miles Mossop Wines

“I’ve never worked anywhere else,” says Miles Mossop. After nearly two decades of steering Tokara’s ship into award-winning wine territory, he’s soon to be sailing solo with Miles Mossop Wines.

Malu Lambert: Interview with Ryan Mostert of Silwervis Wines

Ryan Mostert is the kind of guy that can’t help standing out.  Well, first off he’s tall. Then you’ll notice him for his enthusiasm, his ability to jump on the subject of wine and run with it. Add to that the eye-popping wine labels for Silwervis and Smiley (the recently launched Terracura Syrah’s branding a […]

Malu Lambert: Interview with Peter Bayly of Peter Bayly Wines

Nothing can prepare you for the sheer drama of Peter Bayly’s Klein Karoo vineyard. Hidden just off a dirt road, a sign with a flying pig swings lightly in the dust. The entrance is humble, which makes the view of the vineyard as you turn the corner even more thrilling. Bordered by towering cliffs strung […]

Malu Lambert: Interview with Peter Finlayson of Bouchard Finlayson

Peter Finlayson is carrying a basket of wine as he enters Bistrot Bizerca in Cape Town. He’s exactly my kind of lunch companion—well stocked. Finlayson eases his large frame into a café chair. Our table is under the dappled light of the Cape’s oldest fruit-bearing vine (250 years and counting) in Heritage Square’s courtyard. An […]
