Meet Kristen Duff…You remember Kristen right ? She and her partner , Ms Gosia Podgorska ,were awarded the prize for creating the Best Film for Wine Professionals at the 2014 annual International Œnovideo Grape and Wine Film Festival… Their film, titled Generation Wine, was one of the 12 best films of the year, awarded to films from 7 different countries.  Generation Wine explores the South African wine market in the context of the fight against alcoholism against the industry of wine marketing, and how this can be influenced by possible future legislation.

FYI, Kris and Gosh have a blog called Chalk and Cheese (http://chalkandcheesetheblog.com) if you want more info on what they do.

Kristen was a French Embassy scholarship holder.

Well, she’s back in RSA, after her time in France doing her MSc degree in Wine Business at the School of Wine and Spirits Business of the Burgundy School of Business in Dijon. She came in to see us at the Embassy (thanks for the chocolates by the way Kristen…) and took some time to make this litte clip for us.

Hear what she has to say…
