Michael Fridjhon

“Cape Classics was both a “first of its kind”, as well as “one of a kind.” It was the first enterprise anywhere in the world whose existence was based on the international potential of fine Cape wine, and it remains the only one which has remained true to that vision. Andre Shearer’s genius lay in recognizing this and in taking the concept to the largest and most competitive fine wine market in the world. The company’s continued success resides in the way this insight, which comes with the ability to spot both quality and a unique expression of place or a grape, has become the defining feature of its culture.” -Michael Fridjhon, The Reciprocal Wine Trading Company
