Featuring the Wines from Stellenbosch South Africa of Ken Forrester & Guest Speaker Anthony van Schalkwyk
Born and raised in the beautiful winelands town of Stellenbosch, Anthony was first introduced to the wine industry in 1995 when he worked as a cellar assistant at Welmoed Wine Cellars in Stellenbosch.
The experience intrigued and fascinated Anthony so much that he proceeded to complete his Bachelor of Commerce (Marketing) degree at the University of Stellenbosch to enable him to market South Africa and the wine industry. 2012 will be Anthony’s sixth year with Ken Forrester Vineyards where he has worked in many different areas for the winery.
