We tried our hands at making wine. Here’s the result

In most cases, when you visit a winery, it is to taste the wine, talk to the winemaker and see the vineyard and cellar. Only on the rare occasion you also get the possibility to actually make your own wine. But that is what our travel guests on the latest wine tour to South Africa did. You don’t really have the possibility to make the wine from A to Z in a short visit. But what you can do is one of the most important steps in the winemaking process: the blending. At the Rickety Bridge winery in Franschhoek in South Africa we all had the opportunity to “blend your own wine”.

I brought home “my” personal blend and later served it blind for Britt to taste… Read about how it went on BKWine’s Travel Blog: “Lasting” memory from winery visit in South Africa.

Do you want to have a go at it yourself? The wine tour to South Africa in March is likely to have a blending seminar on the program. Join us. It’s great fun.
