It is with great pleasure that we recount the hustle and bustle of Harvest Season 2013 and share with you the reports of the Cape Winemakers Guild Protégés, who are hard at work behind the scenes. This year we have seven protégés in the programme: Elmarie Botes, in her last year, Philani Shongwe, Chandré Petersen and Heinrich Kulsen in their second year and three new protégé’s – Wade Sander, Ricardo Cloete and Thornton Pillay.
