TERRA VITIS: THE RISING STAR OF ENVIRONMENTAL ENDORSEMENTS
From vineyard to bottle, Terra Vitis guarantees that traceability, organisation and environmental man-agement run seamlessly on farms that apply sustainable techniques.

Soil-searching for fine Pinotage
Like all inspiring wine countries globally, indigenous grape varieties are part of a quintessential blend of things to see, taste and experience. For South Africans, Table Mountain is their beacon of ancient soils, its "tablecloth" of cloud the introduction to the Cape's whimsical weather.

Sauternes and Barsac
Here, too, winter was wet but quite mild, leading to early budburst though the head start was lost due to a cold spring and start of April marked by frost. Flowering went well but June was particularly wet and caused shatter and disease pressure. Botrytis ultimately established itself well and harvesting went seamlessly, producing beautifully crafted noble-rot wines but in very, very small quantities!

Saint-Emilion and Pomerol
These two neighbouring cousins are no exception to the rule – inconsistency left right and centre! Probably the most challenging vintage since 2013.

Kyle MacLachlan: actor and producer… of wine!
Over 30 years ago, the ‘Twin Peaks’ legend was born. Today, the mystery/horror/drama dreamt up by writer Mark Frost and director David Lynch remains as enthralling as ever! The unconventional beauty of Kyle MacLachlan, alias FBI agent Dale Cooper, and the haunting music composed by Angelo Badalamenti probably have a lot to do with it.

Italian wine in the present and future as seen by eight women
The world of Italian wine is increasingly 'female'. In fact, one in four farms is now run by a woman, as are 30% of wineries. Enrolments at viticulture and oenology faculties are also increasing, as is the number of female winemakers across the country. We have selected eight of them to illustrate the fundamental roles played by women in the Italian wine industry.
