just marvelous

As promised – more pictures and what I can remember from our #marvelouswinesafari last Sunday.

The awesome Gemma from &union organised this marvelous way to spend a Sunday.

At 9am 15 wine lovers, a cooler box full of &union beers and a bunch of pastries climbed into a tinted window minibus taxi and departed for Mulderbosch.

On the farm winemaker Adam Mason walked us through the winery and we tasted Rose from the tank and Chenin Blanc & Cabernet Franc from the barrels.
