Since the We Are Africa hospitality trade show was postponed this year, we had to reach out to that community of customers and hospitality players in digital format. Have a look below to view the fireside chat with Allister, and some of the stories of building a wine business in Africa. Thanks for hosting us Ryan and your team! Looking forward to a G and T in 2021.

It certainly has been a journey, over the last 12 years, and we have a lot to learn. We are grateful to work with the most incredible brands, customers and partners, who teach us more and more every year! Minute 45 for those of you who want to see what we had to say.

In the first Under the Influence Podcast, brought to you by the Together Store, we are joined by Joris van Almenkerk of Almenkerk Wines to explore the wonderful world of Chardonnay.

We dig into the vineyard, and into the cellar, and find out just how terroir and winemaking techniques influence the flavour and style of Chardonnay. Big thanks
