A Final Post

Date: Wed, Jan 21, 2009 Wine Tasting Wine Business

Yes that's right - a final post. This is going to be the last post on the The Winepost. It's sad to say goodbye but I think that now is the time to put it out of it's misery. When I started there were only a handful of wine blogs, but now it seems like everyone who ever thought about wine is writing a blog about it.The long and the short of it is that my life has become too busy to cope with the demands of being high quality - the quality has dipped in the last eighteen months, and it's almost become a chore to write something interesting regularly. Perhaps my life is too dull, or when I do something interesting I'm not near a computer to blog about it. I don't know. With a renewal due on the domain and my hosting package also up for renewal now would seem like the time to go.So goodbye and thanks for reading. It'll be interesting to see if anyone else buys the domain name once it finally goes. If anyone is interested in carrying on the blog then do pop me a line - it's yours gratis, free, for nothing.

Is this year South Africa's Annus Mirabilis?

Date: Fri, Jan 16, 2009 Wine Tasting Wine Business

With exchange rates putting the prices of wines up, could South Africa be in a position to really take advantage this year?The prices of euro-zone wines are sure to go up this year, with importers worrying about the state of the pound, importing into the UK has got expensive, a bottle that costs a retailer ten euros, eighteen months ago would probably have sold somewhere between 10.99 and 11.49, today though with merchants wary of exchange rates that figure is more likely to be 15.49 at todays exchange rates or given that there needs to be an allowance for market fluctuations more like 16.49.With the dollar holding up against the pound (remember it used to be over $2 to the pound and now sits in the high $1.40s) wines from Chile, California and Argentina are going to cost more too, add into that strong Australian and New Zealand dollars and the outlook for the UK wine drinker isn't very good.Step up to the mark, South Africa. Yes we don't get as many Rand for our pound as we used to, but it's a healthier situation than it used to be, what is more South Africa has for the last few years tended to offer a very good quality to price ratio. It's a real opportunity for the Cape to show what they can do at every price point from the budget bargain busting supermarket wines to the top end quality wines. You only need to look at the last few Decanter awards (which I don't pay a huge amount of interest in) and see that South Africa has come out very strongly. That isn't to say that everything is good, and I don't really like awards - but the fact that they performed well across the board suggests that they were impressive wines. If I were marketing South African wines, I think I'd look at this year and say - you know what this is the year to put in a real push and see what we can do.
