SEMINAR

>> TITLE: OLD, BUT NOT FORGOTTEN:
HOW THE OLD VINE PROJECT IS SHAPING A NEW WINE CATEGORY AND CREATING GLOBAL IMPACT.

Place: Hall 10 ProWein Forum
Date: 18th March 2019
Time: 12:00
Speaker: André Morgenthal



DISCOVER how gnarly old vines that have survived the savages of time and harsh conditions, are enhancing the South African wine scene by producing authentic wine styles. The Old Vine Project has the purpose to preserve vines older than 35 years by creating awareness of the old vine heritage. The Certified Heritage Seal is a first of its kind and is shaping a new wine category with substantial structure and complexity. André Morgenthal will explain how the collective movement of the Old Vine Project is uniting and advancing the South African wine scene, its people and the environment.

André Morgenthal has a longstanding career in the wine and tourism industry in South Africa. He joined the Old Vine Project in 2016 as Project Manager, which follows on from his previous position at Wines of South Africa as well as a career making wine in South Africa and a few harvests in Burgundy. A selection of rare Old Vine wines will be tasted.
