Kim,

Thanks for the awesome history lesson! Just had Hubert de Bouard at our restaurant and wine store last week. He was very excited to see that we had his ZA wine here in Florida! Look forward to sharing some great wine with you next July! Happy Holidays, Michael & Terri

The dryer wines are usually my favorites and Sauvignon Blanc is wonderful even in winter. Your writings about wine are really so well done and informative. it was nice to hear the story behind the vineyard.

Hi Kim, A very interesting story. You might ask Duncan if he is aware that his Aunt (Pam, who is my sister) presently lives in a converted barn that was once part of the greater Cloete estate, albeit now some distance from the nearest Constantia vines.
