Ken Forrester – Mr. Chenin

Ken Forrester started a career in the Hotel industry with Southern Sun, in the early days of Sol Kerzner, way back in 1977, after a 3-year course in Hotel Management at the Johannesburg Hotel School. He then went on to specialise in the restaurant trade, buying a share in one of the best restaurants of the day in the centre of Johannesburg, and from there a string of other restaurants and related activities culminating in being elected Chairman of the Federated Hospitality Association of SA (FEDHASA).

Then in 1993 he and his wife, Teresa, bought the farm on a public auction. Still his love for food and wine dictated and from 1993 – 1999 he was Chairman of Chaîne des Rôtisseurs.

Ken was a founder member of the Chenin Blanc Association and as Chairman he plays an important role in promoting the variety and image of Chenin Blanc both in local and international markets.
