Top honours for SA wine estate

first_img26 November 2008South Africa received good publicity once more at this year’s International Wine and Spirit Competition (IWSC), held in London last week, after the Winemaker of the Year trophy was awarded to local vintner Abrie Beeslaar, on behalf of the Kanonkop Wine Estate.This year’s competition featured more than 7 000 entries, with southern hemisphere entries coming in four months later than those from the north, allowing for the judging panel to spend over half the year to assess all the entries.‘Best blended red’In addition to picking up the Dave Hughes trophy for best South African wine producer, the Kanonkop Wine Estate also make history in the competition by winning the Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande trophy for the best blended red wine for the third time.Dave Hughes, a respected local wine expert and commentator, has been in the local wine industry since 1986, and was involved in the formation of the Cape Wine Academy in 1979. He has also written over a dozen books about South African wines and vineyards, as well as travelling through the Cape winelands.“Only a fortnight ago, Madame May de Lancquesaing had joined Dave Hughes and the team at Kanonkop in Stellenbosch for a celebratory tasting and dinner at the winery, in the company of all three cellarmasters that had served Kanonkop so assiduously since 1965 – Jan Boland Coetzee, Beyers Truter and current cellarmaster Abie Beeslaar,” IWSC competition manager Bev Steer said in a statement last week.“There is clearly a great deal more to be celebrating now!”‘New World’ winesAccording to the IWSC, wines from the “New World” continued to outperform, with Australia once again taking pole position with the highest percentage of gold medals against their number of wines entered, at 3.3%.“The stringent judging meant that only 107 gold or gold ‘best in class’ medals were awarded across all wine entries worldwide,” the statement read.South Africa and France came joint second with 19 gold medals each, representing 3.2 and 2% of their entries respectively. New Zealand was the next highest scorer with 11 gold medals.SAinfo reporter Would you like to use this article in your publicationor on your website?See: Using SAinfo materiallast_img read more

Executive Book Club – September 2013

first_imgThe heart of workplace diversity lies with enlightened leadership and a genuine commitment to fairness, rather than numbers-counting to meet legal requirements, or even persuading others that it serves as a competitive advantage. Leading with Your Heart explores inspired leadership across an organization and the use of a positive moral compass to drive a new way of thinking and integrating our nation’s rich diversity. Cari Dominguez and Judith Sotherlund use the term “ganas” (gah-nas) to capture this concept. Ganas speaks to one’s inner desire to succeed. Motivation drives performance. Inspired motivation drives individuals to connect their day-to-day practices with their guiding beliefs, and to do the right things in the face of obstacles. Leading with Your Heart presents anecdotes of inspired inclusion in the workplace, not necessarily to establish best practices models for replication, but to affirm the lasting values of integrity and fairness that result from leading with the heart. HR professionals will find Leading with Your Heart instrumental in bridging the gap between the idealized expectations of the C-suite and the pressing realities of needing to get the job done at the line manager and local levels.

first_imgTORONTO – The Canadian Securities Association says its reconsidering the appropriateness of its disclosure policy for cannabis companies with U.S. operations after the U.S. did away with the Cole Memorandum.In October, the CSA said cannabis companies with U.S. operations were clear to list in Canada so long as they disclosed the risks to investors.It said it would re-examine that stance if the U.S. federal government’s approach changed.Earlier this month, U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions rescinded the Obama-era memo, which suggested the federal government would not intervene in states where the drug is legal even as marijuana remained illegal under federal law.The CSA says it will communicate more details about its position shortly.The CSA is the umbrella organization for Canada’s provincial and territorial securities regulators.last_img read more

Auditor No clear strategy for improving broadband access in rural remote areas

first_imgOTTAWA — Canada’s auditor general says the government hasn’t established a clear national strategy that sets out the costs and timelines for bringing broadband access in rural and remote areas up to the national minimum standard.The auditor general’s fall report says officials in the Department of Innovation, Science and Economic Development estimated it might cost $6.5 billion to provide all parts of Canada with at least the minimum standard.The report says, among other things, that the lack of a national strategy had hampered the implementation of the Liberal government’s Connect to Innovate program, which allocated $500 million over five years starting in 2016. It says ISED has been slow to inform stakeholders about when backbone network infrastructure funded by the program will be available to them and what they would be charged for access.It adds that only three contracts had been signed under the program as of June 2018, due to delays in the department’s process for completing due diligence on project applications.In its response, ISED said it agreed with the report and began a consultation in June to establish a national digital and data strategy that includes broadband connectivity.
