    Where to now for South African Wine with Heidi Duminy

    Where to now for South African Wine with Heidi Duminy

    The South African wine industry is facing their biggest challenge in over three centuries after the devastating effects of complete prohibition in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, yet the rising quality and reputation of their wines, together with the tenacity of the farmers and producers has inspired a wave of support from the global wine community in recent months.

    It's been a long road from. the vineyards of the Cape Winelands to international markets, but the vibrance and diversity of South Africa's wines have been making real traction in recent years. Until now. The Afrikaans adage 'n boer maak n plan' meaning 'a farmer makes a plan' captures the spirit of resilience of the vintners who have come together to mobilise a recovery strategy as their future hangs in the balance. Join us for a one-hour webinar to hear their story from the post-Apartheid new dawn to the current landscape and what lies ahead for a future shaped by unimaginable setbacks.

    Presenter: Heidi Duminy, CWM

    Heidi is a Cape Wine Master and Principal of the Cape Wine Academy.  She is a wine marketing and communications specialist recognised for her particular expertise in Cap Classique and Champagne. Her passion for wine is infectious and she shares her knowledge and experience by writing, teaching and presenting wine lectures and tasting experiences as head of South Africa’s most established and recognised wine school.

    Heidi was previously Group Marketing Manager for Meridian Wine Merchants, Global Communications manager for DGB, Brand Manager for Veuve Clicquot and Krug and Trade Marketing Manager of the LVMH portfolio of Champagnes and spirits in South Africa.

    Heidi is an experienced judge for Old Mutual Classic Wine Trophy competition, is the panel chair for the Amorim Cap Classique Challenge and has assessed sparkling wine for the Veritas Competition since 2010.
