Visit from 9-14 February 2020 of Nadia Castellanos, Wine Category Manager, Focus Brands Ltd
Well if you ever want to know how to visit 13 wineries in 5 days and taste over 200 wines then please ask Nadia Castellanos!!
What an amazing week, and what great fun and experience.
I obviously visit the wineries a lot but to do them all in 5 days is pretty special and a little bit intense.
We started at Raats Family Wines in Stellenbosch, and went onto visit:
Delaire Graff Winery, Ernie Els Wines, Kleinood (Tamboerskloof)(all
Stellenbosch), Cederberg (Cederberg), Deetlefs Winery (Rawsonville), Overhex
(Worcester), Avondale (Paarl), Mount Vernon (Klatmuts), Napier (Wellington),
Groot Constantia Winery, Eagles Nest Winery (Constantia), Cape Point
This was an important trip for Nadia to learn about the various wineries and their wines, to meet the people, to understand the place and to identify the right brands to introduce and target to our key clients in the Middle East, including Dubai Duty Free, Truebell, MMI, Emirates, Ethiad Airline, Holiday Group and the many other operations that Focus Brands and Diverse Flavours
work with throughout the Middle East.
