I asked my swedish Facebookfriends to name their favorite south african wines – and I got quite a good response (see here!). Swedes love south african wine and we got quite a good range at the swedish monopoly.
Therefore it is with great pleasure that I can announce that Ericsson Uncorked is going to South Africa – already next week. Me and videoproducer Björn Lilja are now preparing a seven day tour that will take us from Cape Town and Constantia, south towards Elgin and Walker Bay, then north towards Stellenbosch and Paarl and finally even further north to Swartland and Darling.
And it is quite hard work to choose which among such a number of great wine producers.
So this is my wishlist (in no particular order). Unfortunately we will not be able to visit all of these wineries – but some have already been booked and I am really looking forward to meeting the people behind them. Others have still to confirm. I will keep you posted along the way.
But for now – who or which producers have I missed?
• De Toren
• Le Riche
• De Krans
• Axe Hill
