(This changes as I feel like it. The blog is about wine and myself. Go read the posts, you’ll get the idea)
Welcome one and all to a glimpse into the life of an aspiring wine person. Yes, a wine person. A jack of all wines to be precise. As of Februaury 2012 (after some time as a restaurant manager and wine marketer) I decided to go it alone and start freelancing in the South African wine world. Will it work? Will I end up in the gutter? Who knows?
In a nutshell this blog is, as the title suggests, about myself and wine. I am not going to use this valuble space here to tell where it all started, but you can read about it here. That link takes to you to 2Oceansvibe.com I have a weekly column there, as well as a radio feature. Enjoy them.
Basically, I love wine. Which is as cliched a comment as possible, but it’s true. Whether that statement is just a flimsy cover for an alcohol problem is debatable. I am happy to debate it with you over a good bottle. The point is I want to do something that I enjoy doing, so I am trying to do that in wine. This blog will see how successful I am. Along with opinion, rants, elaborate tasting notes, and possibly reviews of things I know nothing about just to keep it a little spicy.
I also hope to convince you that fine wine is the king of drinks, hell it’s the queen too. It is my favourite drug, my preferred tipple, it is a truly wonderous beverage that I want to envelope myself in. I try to avoid bullshit, and am happy to be wrong. Wine, like literature is a lifelong pursuit and you will die with a lot left to learn. Every single one of us. Join me as I try to escape the ineveitable.
Also, I’m always up for lunch. Contact details here
