Description

in 1973, KWV (one of the nation’s largest winemaking co-operatives) commissioned Janice Ashby Design Studios to create a group of twelve pictorial maps celebrating the establishment of new wine regions throughout South Africa. That same year, the “Wine of Origin” program was introduced to the country, and various wines from each geographic area began to be subjected to strict regulatory and quality assurance controls.

These is a group of six maps from that collection, slightly reduced from their originals and likely published a year of two afterwards. Included are the wine producing regions of Stellenbosch, Boberg, Paarl, Malmesbury, Constantia, and Tulbagh. On each sheet, bundles of grapes identify the location of vineyards and cooperatives and numerous decorative elements like coats of arms, historic vignettes and landscape scenes are present; making for both an attractive and practical map.
