Wine Enthusiast magazine of New York covered the recent international 2012 Nederburg Wine Auction in Paarl, South Africa, where Professor Mike Veseth, Robert G. Albertson Professor of International Political Economy, was the keynote speaker.
Veseth, the magazine writes, "had the crowd cheering after delivering what was widely considered to be one of the best keynote speeches in the auction's history."
Veseth, author of The Wine Economist blog and the best-selling book Wine Wars: The Curse of the Blue Nun, The Miracle of Two Buck Chuck and the Revenge of the Terroirists, spoke about how South Africa could win the "Wine Wars."
