On Friday the 26th of March we are joined by Joseph Dhafana from Mosi Wines for another edition of our talk show “Cellar Talks”. Joseph will join us to talk about his career in wine, work as a winemaker and his company Mosi Wines from South Africa.
About Mosi Wines
Mosi wines & spirits is founded by Joseph Dhafana, a winemaker and wine professional from Zimbabwe. Mosi concentrates on sourcing the best fruits from only healthy vineyards to produce excellent quality wines. They also forage ingredients for their own gin from the bushes of chirumhanzu Zimbabwe, so that they can craft a premium gin and advocate this avenue to mindfully enjoying life.
Their wines and spirits are named after family members as this is a family owned business. For now they have Chenin Blanc named after their wine maker’s son Tinashe, and a Syrah that is a tribute to our winemaker’s father. Next to that they have their own gin that is named after the whole clan.
