DWWA 2013 South Africa Judging Panel
Vladimir Gorodkov drifted into the world of wine after building a successful career in the fruit and beer industries. He moved to South Africa in 1992, where he was captivated by the aura and mystique of wine, resulting in him completing the Cape Wine Academy Diploma. Based in Cape Town, Vladimir is Director of Majestic Demand Trading and runs his own consultancy, offering services in marketing, wine education and, most recently, wine tourism for trade professionals. Links to his native Russia remain - he has been promoting Wines of South Africa in the country since 2005.
