This coffee table book primarily focuses on the winemakers and their thoughts, opinions and philosophies on all things to do with wine, from the growing, making and enjoyment of it, to its original role - past, present and future - in the culture and lifestyle of the Cape and South Africa.

Beautifully written by Wendy Toerien, the text is both lighthearted and entertaining as well as evocative and informative. Each of the 45 Guild members is featured in a profile piece that includes anecdotes, insights and experiences of a life with food and wine. Also included are two of each winemakers's favourite recipes, matched with one (or more) of his (or her) top wines. Sections dealing with the history of the CWG (interwoven with its role in leading Cape wine industry developments and initiatives); the workings og the CWG and its members (the philosophy of the traditional role of the Guild as a touchstone for artisanal excellence); and the activities of the CWG (including the annual, internationally prestigious auction of selected member's wines and social responsibility programmes such as the Development Trust to mento new young winemakers from previously disadvantaged backgrounds and school funding) are another feature of this celebration of the Guild and its members.

Great Book

Not just a cook book. This book gives you good insight into the different wines and shows a fun side of all the wine makers. Proudly South African.
