Andrea Mullineux grew up in California, where she originally wanted to become an astronaut. These days, her home is in South Africa, where she’s created two world-class wineries with her husband, Chris: Mullineux Family Wines and Leeu Passant. She’s a fascinating interviewee, happy to discuss topics as wide ranging as her love of Chenin Blanc and Syrah, the properties of different soil types, the genesis of the Swartland Revolution and the perfect recipe for chocolate chip cookies.
Don’t forget, Cork Talk is now available on Spotify. You can listen to this week’s episode, plus my back catalogue of interviews with some of the world’s most extraordinary wine figures.
