South Africa: Video Interview with Chris Williams of Meerlust

By John ~ March 27th, 2009.

On our recent trip to South Africa, we had the opportunity to have a private tasting, tour, and very nice visit with Chris Williams, winemaker at Meerlust and owner/winemaker of The Foundry. I previously reported on the tasting in my February 27th post, South Africa: Day 2 in Stellenbosch.

During our visit, Chris was kind enough to do a video interview and answer questions about Meerlust, The Foundry, and South African winemaking. I believe you will find his comments about the 300 year history of Meerlust interesting as well as his prescription for South Africa making the same impact in the United States as have other New World winemaking regions.

Here’s our full interview:
