The Colour of Wine: tasting change

by | Oct 19, 2018 | Blog, Development and Transformation, Lifestyle, News

The Colour of Wine isn’t just another book about picturesque Cape vineyards. Instead, it tells the remarkable story of South Africa’s transition from apartheid to democracy through the personal journeys of black winemakers. Woven through their stories are interviews with wine producers and politicians, chefs and sommeliers, connoisseurs and teachers, drinkers and tasters.

The book, twinned with the documentary film The Colour of Wine (included on DVD), explores the turbulent history of winemaking in South Africa, and the varied careers the industry has to offer. Wine doyen John Platter offers insights into where South African wine is now, and where the industry needs to go. You’ll also discover a rich array of local recipes that complement South African wines. The Colour of Wine gives a taste of the changing world of South African wine.

The documentary, The Colour of Wine,  directed by Akin Omotoso  is showing at the Bioscope in Johannesburg from 26-30 October 2018. Please click below for more details and tickets are available HERE. The Colour of Wine book (including the documentary DVD) will be available in stores in November 2018 at R450 Please contact Nicola ON for reviews, interviews and extracts
