The Tim Atkin SA Report 2017 is out and we got a table of wines on the 90+ list!
Say’s Tim: “Both at home and overseas, there is a growing awareness of the winemaking and viticultural revolution that is unfolding in the Cape. Consumers worldwide are becoming increasingly passionate about South African wines. And not before time! My annual report is, I hope, a part of that success.”
It sure is Tim!
Our school report reads as follows:
Not too shabby hey Nige.
A few bits of news from our side as we get ready to relax on Easter Weekend.
Adi extended his visit to the US by a few days when he was made an “offer-you-cant-refuse”. He spent the last few days in billionaire Sean Parker‘s mansion in Palm Spring, serving our wines to some of Hollywood’s biggest names. (we will keep the details to ourselves, this is not People magazine, and we value our clients’ privacy…)
The rest of us had a (slightly) less exciting week, but non the less, here are some details:
Also, while Adi is “entertaining” in the USA Jasper conducted an early morning tasting in the cellar (coffee first!) with www.wine.co.za‘s Dusan Jelic. This was part of Dusan’s Swartland Revolution Roadtrip and the stories will be published on wine.coza this weekend.
And last, but most definitely not least, we got some mention by James Molesworth in the May issue of Wine Spectator. James spoke to Adi about importing to the USA, quite apt when you consider this week’s activities…
And that is all the news from us.
Wishing you and your loved ones a safe and blessed Easter Weekend.
Drive safely and enjoy the time off!
