"MARK SOLMS (Chairman) is a South African neuropsychologist and psychoanalyst. He is Professor of Neuropsychology at the University of Cape Town, Director of the Neuro-Psychoanalysis Centre of the New York Psychoanalytic Institute and co-chair of the International Neuro-Psychoanalysis Society. Formerly based in London, he returned to South Africa in 2002 to revitalise an historic wine farm where he now also runs a winemaking business and social enterprise."
The Solms-Astor range of wine "celebrates a partnership between Mark Solms and British philanthropist Richard Astor, who each control one third of the modern-day Delta estate. Together they have tackled the social realities of South African agriculture with maverick zeal. First they established a trust that benefits the estate’s historically disadvantaged residents and employees".
