In this two-part series titled The Fine Wine Debate, we speak to CEO of the Areni Global Institute, Pauline Vicard, about her wine industry study: “The Future of the Fine Wine Consumer”.
Together we try to figure out where South Africa’s top-tier wines fit into the global picture of fine wine. We grapple with what the term “fine wine” actually means, and explore how a “nice wine” may be different to a “good wine”. Pauline shares her own thoughts on the definition, as well as what global wine critics and industry professionals deem of utmost importance when distinguishing “fine wine” from everything else.
