2021 Wine Days - All the reasons to celebrate!

Wine Days Jan 05, 2021

The year is only 6 days old, but already we are facing challenges. In South Africa wine (alcohol) sales have once again been banned in an effort to reduce the pressure on the health care sector. Here, in the UK, we've just been put into another strict lockdown in an effort to curb the spread of the virus. The more I think about it, the more this paragraph reads like the introduction to a science fiction novel. 😳

Luckily, through all of this, we still have wonderful people making wonderful wines that we will be able to enjoy this year. So diarise these dates and join me for a tasting and discussion about the wines on their respective days!
