Taking on the World

….While it looks as if South Africa may be the target of quite a few more Bordeaux winemakers, there are increasingly few places in the world where the French can take the upper hand in joint ventures, as they clearly have until now. Perhaps a sign of things to come is the new Australian partnership, Tapanappa, between Brian Croser and the families of Bollinger and Lynch-Bages.

In marked contrast to the usual French dominance in presenting these wines to the world, in the Tapanappa brochure Croser is the author. He makes no mention of the undoubted expertise of his foreign investors, but instead writes: “I chose my partners … because of their steadfast commitment to Tapanappa’s mission and becuase they are great people with whom to share the excitement.”

Don't miss out on the next vintage of Tapanappa Chardonnays again!
