South Africa and Coastal Regions with Simon Back of Backsberg
This show was published 08 April 2011
Simon Back of Backsberg gives us an overview of the history of Backsberg, which began when his great-grandfather purchased the farm in 1916. His family has since put Backsberg firmly on the map and today it’s a household name in South Africa. We discuss the coastal wine regions of Stellenbosch and Paarl as well as the grape varieties and some of the quality issues South Africa’s wine industry faced in the mid 1990’s when the country’s wine production took off.
