1938 Wynbereiding

In 1938 the Department of Agriculture and Forestry issued a 104-page pamphlet on the subject of “Wynbereiding” (Winemaking). Authored by Prof C. J Theron and C.J.G Niehaus, it was the first publication in South Africa to deal with the practical science of winemaking. The Department was very actively producing pamphlets on almost every aspect of agriculture, including wine titles on fortified wine, sherry, and vine growing all now extremely scarce.
