About Me

By day I’m a Professional Associated Valuer, involved in commercial property valuations and by night I enjoy, make and drink wine, which I have a passion for, hence the allurement to begin this blog.

I attend wine tastings and courses and taste on panels whenever I can. I have completed the Certificate Wine Course at the Cape Wine Academy and I am currently busy completing Diploma. The intention is to qualify as a Cape Wine Master – let’s see what happens!

I have had a dab at making my own Shiraz. It was a good learning experience and I understand the winemaking process a little better now. Was the wine drinkable you ask? Well, it was my first attempt and I will do things differently the next time around. Some bottles were not bad at all and they are all finished, the other bottles, uhm… lets just call them school fees :)
