A Focus on South Africa

The South African wine industry is in crisis. New laws outlaw the movement of wine within the country, making exports almost impossible. The legislation was partly justified by the incidence of truck hijacking on the roads from the winelands to the ports. Producers have proposed the use of private security firms to protect the shipments, but so far to no avail. Co-moderated by Tim Atkin MW, and bringing together a wide range of participants from the Cape and elsewhere, this promises to be one of our liveliest and hopefully most influential sessions.

Real Business of Wine

The Real Business of Wine was a lockdown initiative by Robert Joseph, aka the Wine Thinker, and Polly Hammond, aka Ms 5forests. Every RBW webinar brought together top professionals from across the world to share their expertise and experience on a specific topic with a global community.
