Cape Expectations

A new generation has brought a new energy to the Cape's winelands, making this not just one of the most beautiful regions to visit, but also one of the most exciting.

Who wouldn't be delighted to be asked to join buyer Jo Locke on her trip to the Cape? Buying department colleague Steve Farrow was that lucky man, and while he was surprised at how tiring the trip proved to be he was bowled over by the passion of the people, the beauty of the landscape and, of course, the wines.
