Kim D.

Cape Town, Western Cape, South Africa

I have been in the wine industry either part or full-time for the last 25 years and I have been a wine specialist guide for over a decade.

I developed an insatiable curiosity for all the facets of the wine industry when I sat in on some of Cape Wine Academy's Diploma Level lectures. This prompted me to begin my own studies and I have been learning about wine ever since.

Someone once asked me how much I know about wine, my answer remains the same today: "I know enough about wine to know that I know next to nothing. "

What I do know is that I love taking people on tours through the magical vineyards in the Western Cape. There are so many to choose from and so little time…

When you come on a tour with me, you will be treated to interesting out-of-the-classroom lessons and discussions which may include geography, history, science, politics, philosophy, sociology and art, not to mention an introduction to the myriad culinary delights that this part of the world has to offer!

A Recent Review of this guide

There were four people in our group and none of us can stop raving about how great Kimmi was. She is EXTREMELY knowledgeable, kind, attentive, and prepared. The entire day was a joy. Every vineyard we went to was amazing and lunch was the same. Kimmi's knowledge of wine was truly remarkable and so helpful as some of us were newbies. She helped guide us to exactly what we were looking for at every vineyard. I can not recommend her enough. ! . If you are ever in Cape Town you must hire her!
