Viini Tv Interviews Bruce Jack : Part I Posted on June 12 2011 by
Bruce Jack talks South African wine and vuvzelas with Finland's Ilkka from Viini Tv. Viini Tv's laid back approach to wine brings simple pleasure back into the world of wine, with a license to spill.
In Part I Bruce talks about how the advent of democracy made it possible for wine entrepreneurs to start wineries from scratch. Giving them the ability to buy in grapes, or in fact rent land from wine growers. This new, in South Africa, method of producing wine doesn't come without its headaches and the relationship between grower and winemaker becomes a crucial collaboration to ensure the best possible balance is procured from the vine. Bruce's also reveals his carefully calculated approach to selecting his vineyards.
