Kim, I enjoyed this article so much so that perhaps you can keep a bottle of your favorite pinotage and one of the Britinney Chardonnay for our table. My son and I will be at Londolozi starting May 14 for 6 days. Although I traveled through the wine region last year with my daughter, I did little tasting and definitely missed the pinotage. This year I am being smarter and taking a few days to recuperate from jet lag and thus enjoy my trip more and will be ready for some wine. I look forward to seeing you again if you have the time.

Hi Kim, there was never any danger of any of the Bartiney being left over at Duncan and Jess’ wedding I wish we had ordered more – a lot more!

Great interview Kim and very interesting blog! I am very delighted to say that we are getting more and more of the wonderful South African wines here in Canada now. As we are coming into summer here, I especially like a nice Sauvignon Blanc or I also like an unoaked Chardonnay.
