What a thrill to buy a copy of City Press in Upington yesterday and see a young and beautiful sommelier Heather Nyoni from Dear Me recommend a Swartland white.
But best of all is to know that no expensive PRs were involved. The cost to the producer was a bottle of wine plus the one they will give away to a lucky reader. Isn’t this what SA wine should be about, rather than barkers and shills cashing in on other people’s ideas? The wine flies who buzz around an open bottle like so many midges on the banks of the Orange as the sun sets.
