Recent coverage of South Africa – a guide

Kiara Scott and team at Brookdale Estate, South Africa

With the South African wine business on its knees, thanks to a domestic ban on all alcohol sales, we have been keen to ensure that as many voices working in one of the world's most beautiful sources of fine wine are heard.

As explained in South Africa fewer halos?, we are publishing a series of personal accounts of experiences in South African wine. We thought it might be useful to provide a guide to them, and to other recent articles about South African wine, so here are those published so far, the most recent at the top. Above, Kiara Scott, author of today's personal account, is seen extreme right with the rest of the Brookdale Estate team.
