Book Description

19 May 2011
The essential guide to South African wines: Terroir and travel is the second edition of the illustrated Guide on the wines of South Africa. This Guide presents the existing wine-producing regions in the uncomplicated Wine Pockets system. Individual Pockets highlight a specific terroir unit along with local wine styles, providing insight into the unique qualities of each wine-producing area. The guide helps you to select a pocket, jump in the car, and do a day-drive to visit some of the unique wineries of that area. Detailed relief maps provide you with GPS coordinates and are backed up by downloadable waypoints and routes on the website www.cheviot-publishing.com. Every pocket takes you on a meaningful journey, discovering the terroir, viticulture, winemaking techniques and flagship wines of some of the premium producers. The wine tasting chapter opens the world to understanding, tasting and serving wine, while the SA wine collection explores the pleasures, and even profits, that local terroir wines can provide. This up-to-date, informative reference work provides vital local knowledge on the practicalities of visiting South Africa's Winelands. More than 300 commissioned photographs and full-colour illustrations will entice you to drive out and visit these places of great wine.

About the Author

Elmari Swart is the founder of Cheviot Publishing and holds an M.Sc. (Oenology) degree from Stellenbosch University, South Africa. This is the fifth book she has published in as many years. Elmari has written about diverse wine-related subjects, ranging from the chemistry in wine to the more subjective understanding of terroir. She has received several international and local awards - both in publishing and business - and her first title became a best-seller within a few months of publication. Elmari indulgences her boundless passion for winemaking - she and her husband produce 1 200 bottles of fine wine annually in their garagiste winery, aptly named The Cheviot Winery. Elmari is regularly invited to judge wines for local competitions, and expands her experienced pallet by regularly travelling to Northern and Southern-hemisphere wine-making regions. Izak Smit is a business advisor on the agricultural sector in South Africa. Izak has an international commercial background in export and trade to the United Kingdom. He is a firm advocate of South African terroir wine.
