We have been part of a very exciting exchange program between Western Cape and Burgundy.
The Thuthukile Skweyiya West-ern Cape - Burgundy Wine Exchange Program was named after South Africa's former ambassador to France and UNESCO, who started it in 2001. Its main objective is to motivate young people to improve their social status through education and training, made possible through a common commitment by participants, professionals and politicians of these two regions.

Now in it's 11th year we have again got two Burgundy estagiers with us and will be with us for 3 weeks during harvest.

We have been supporters of this program from the start, as I believe it brings our cellar guys closer to seeing other parts of the wine world they would of never seen.

We have had our own Attie Pieterse & Marius Stevens going on life-changing travels to Burgundy to enjoy the French harvest.

So we welcome Marc from the village of Nuits St Georges and Sebastian from the city of Beaune. They are both at the Wine School in Beaune.

We hope you have will learn for us and that you will con-tribute to your harvest experience with us in Robertson. Enjoy the warm hospitality of the Graham Beck Wines‘ team and off-course Bettie's lunch time meal!
