The launch event of the new YPO South African Wine Group was held at the magnificent 'Marion on Nichol' luxury hotel in Johannebsurg on Thursday evening the 7th of October. With almost 20 YPO/WPO members present, fellow YPO'er Mike Ratcliffe, co-owner of Vilafonte Vineyards and Warwick Wine Estate in Stellenbosch welcomed guests and presented the plans for the future of the Wine Network. Under the auspices of the YPOI Wine Network, Mike has been mandated to increase the range of YPO wine participation around the world given the current focus of the network being predominantly American. This South African event will be followed by events in Cape Town and Durban.
