Off to South Africa

I'm off soon (50 minutes) to South Africa for a five-day trip. It's the first time I've been since December 2005, when I tagged on a three day wine segment on the back of a scientific conference - those were the days when I had to juggle wine writing with a full time job.

It was a very enjoyable trip, written up in anorak-like detail elsewhere on this site. I'm hoping that this week's visit will be an eye-opener, and that I'll get a glimpse into South Africa's emerging fine wine dimension.

I'm particularly looking forward to a day in Swartland with the likes of Eben Sadie and Chris Mullineux.

The trip starts all geeky. When I arrive tomorrow after an overnight flight, I'll be meeting some scientists at Stellenbosch University. That's the way I like it.
