Debra Meiburg MW Meet the Winemaker 231: Leon Bester, Napier Winey

Debra interviews Leon Bester of Napier Winery, based in Wellington, South Africa. They begin by discussing the unique points about South African wines and Wellington’s trendy status within the industry. They talk climate, grape varieties, winemaking style and aging strategies, along with the changes in the industry over the past few years, such as the barrel rooms and ridding the vineyards of viruses. Debra inquires on the specifics of Napier’s Red Medallion– coined the Latour of South Africa, and South Africa’s straddling of old and new world styles.
