"Is this the best Cab Sauvignon in South Africa right now? Yes. Next question please." Natasha Hughes, MW.
Here is what not one, but two Masters of Wine (MW) had to say about our wines this weekend. And considering there are only 355 MW's throughout the world...we think their knowledge of wine is pretty good. Thank you Natasha Hughes (MW) and Madeleine Stenwreth (MW) for your kind words and comments - it was a privilege to share our wines with you. #fueltokeepontrucking
