I agree Kate, ‘Gorgeous’ does look delicious! My favourite South African sparkling wine is Graham Beck’s Brut Rosé, which I am very happy to say, we can now get here in Canada! Not quite the same experience as we had enjoying a flute of it while watching a beautiful South African sunset from our Tree Camp sala, but very enjoyable all the same! Graham Beck’s sparkling wines are all very good.

Graham Beck is definitely leading the pack with their sparkling wines, can’t go wrong with the wine Barrack Obama and Nelson Mandela used for their inaugurations! The Brut Rosé is one of my favourites as well Jill, especially in summer here after a long hot day!

I didn’t realize Graham Beck wines were used at the inaugurations Kim…that’s fantastic and a well-deserved honour for Graham Beck!
