M.S. Walker President Doug Shaw and Thomas Webb, General Manager of Thelema Mountain Vineyards, the first winery represented by Cape Classics and imported to the U.S. through M.S. Walker.

M.S. Walker President Doug Shaw traveled to the wine regions of South Africa to visit Cape Classics’ farms and vineyards in February. As the brand’s first U.S. distributor partner, Shaw first took this trip back in 1991, and recounted the developments in wine making that are unique to the Cape Classic portfolio. “I felt a distinct aura of confidence and pride with the proprietors and winemakers, yet a humbleness that keeps them grounded. I believe this has resulted in more risk taking with all elements leading up to the final product, and ultimately more complex and interesting wines,” said Shaw.
