South Africa's wine redemption - Dr Eilis Cryan's one-woman mission

Wine: South Africa's wine redemption

 22 January 2012 by Tomás Clancy, Sunday Business Post

Dr Eilis Cryan is on a one-woman mission to bring bespoke South African wine to Ireland.

One woman, however, has made it her mission to concentrate solely on handcrafted Burgundy-style South African wine.  A Galway doctor Eilis Cryan became interested in South African wines after travelling to the country in 1998. She founded Kinnegar Wines on her return, and began a 13-year engagement with some of the bestwinemakers and wine estates in South Africa. Over the years she has amassed Irish agencies for wine estates that are fought over tooth and nail in other jurisdictions.
