Organized by

Mark Tanner

I moved to Franschhoek in the Cape Winelands in 1981 and was immediately influenced by the surrounding vineyards and ever present wine activities. In 1982 and 1983, I completed wine courses with KWV, in those days in parallel with the Cape Wine Academy and began working on a wine estate selling valley wines and hosting private functions. From there I worked for two other wine estates with a focus on international trade. This brought me in contact with the international wine market and led to invitations to judge at the International Wine Challenge in London. With numerous contacts I found myself visiting other wine producing countries including France, Italy, Germany, Austria and later, California. Today I am a tour guide specialising in wine tours for foreign visitors and private tours in the Franschhoek Valley.
