It’s not easy or often I have the immense pleasure of enjoying Rich’s wine. Our family gathering a couple of weeks ago provided a rare opportunity to try his Viognier. It was superb and the moment was too good not to snap this pic.
He also makes a lovely red, that I’ve had several years ago. Having spent his formative years in Burgundy, ten from memory, he moved almost 20years ago to the cape in South Africa to work in and around the wine world near Stellenbosch.
As a small Independent winemaker in a highly competitive market, it’s a tough business from a strictly financial viewpoint, but it provides him with an enormous amount of pleasure and pride. I only wish it was easier to get hold of his wine!
