Product description


"A hopeful and interesting read."--Fred Tasker"Sacramento Bee" (08/14/2013)

"South African wine has needed a book like 'Wines of the New South Africa' for some time. . . . [James] brings a fresh perspective and a critical eye to a wine region about which he clearly cares deeply. The result is that 'Wines of the New South Africa' is as complete a reference on the South African wine scene as you're likely to find, and those with an interest in learning more about South African wine will be able to spend many hours with the book."--Joe Roberts, 1WineDude.com"wine.answers.com" (09/01/2013)

"James writes passionately and intelligently about the wines of his homeland. . . . Wine lovers of every stripe should find 'New South Africa' interesting reading. . . . An informative reference."--Gerald Boyd"Wine Review Online" (09/04/2013)

"It was once said that Wagner's music is better than it sounds. The same is true of James's Wines of the New South Africa."--Michael Fridjhon "Business Day "

From the Inside Flap

"Tim James combines the necessary cool eye and warm heart as successfully as any wine writer, making him the ideal guide to the new South Africa. Critical, knowledgable, and passionate, erudite, eloquent, and lucid, he finds the gold at both ends of the rainbow, explaining the past and illuminating the present with a light but very sure touch. This is the book on South Africa for which wine lovers have been waiting."--Neil Beckett, editor of The World of Fine Wine

"Tim James knows the Cape wine scene as well as anyone and far better than most local journalists. He brings an academic's rigour to his research, but he's a hedonist, too, reveling in the best wines. South Africa is lucky to have such a well informed advocate."--Tim Atkin MW
