Learn about wine

27wine600.1

Not a particularly sports orientated post, but I love wine and these guys do a better job of explaining it to me than anyone else I have ever come across. Check out their tasting events calendar and make sure you attend in your city.

We have sat and ruminated on what tastings to bring out in the next six months and here they are (from April onwards). More details on each will be posted in the next few weeks, in addition to an exciting chauffeur drive opportunity for the first ten Guests to book any of our tastings in Joburg and Cape Town. Incredible wine, great people, beautiful venues, luxury vehicles. Why the hell not!
