Father De Leeuw took a gamble more than forty years ago when he started importing wines from South Africa. It proved to be a decision that paid off. Today, son Peter is head of one of the most efficient wine import businesses in Belgium. Kaapwijn Import De Leeuw represents a fine selection of South African top wineries (Almenkerk, Badenhorst, De Toren, Lismore, Meerlust, Rijk’s, Steenberg, Warwick, Waterford…) that not only produce beautiful wines, but are also well worth a visit.

André Morgenthal, one of the country’s leading wine specialists and founder of South African ‘wine tourism’, provided matching texts to the visuals.

It is a proud nation with great individuality, but also a land of unprecedented diversity and contrasts.

Les Brasseries de Paris, the first volume in Henk van Cauwenbergh’s much-talked-about series on cities, has been out of print for quite some time now. High time, therefore, to devote a new book to the creative and frivolous city of lights that is so dear to him.
