Joanna Locke MW, chairman of the institute, said: I am delighted to award my first Chairman's Scholarship to Anzill Adams. Anzill's enthusiasm for the wine industry, together with his commitment to the development and transformation of that industry in South Africa, will be of real benefit to the Institute. I congratulate him on winning his scholarship.'
