“When I moved into South Africa in 2011, I fell in love with wine as I moved through the South African winelands across Constantia, Stellenbosh, Franshoek, Paarl & Hermanus wine routes in a quest to discover the secret behind the elegance of South African Wines. I remain grateful for the opportunity to spend about a year in the Cape navigating from one wine farm to the next, tasting wines and learning what set South African wines apart from other wines of the world.”
In 2018, she released her first series of wines into the wine market; a Pinotage 2013 ‘Mon Homme’ and a Chenin Blanc/Chardonnay 2017 blend ‘Msenangu,’ carefully crafted by winemaker Hendrik Snyman.”
Her most recent series of wine releases are here in collaboration with world-acclaimed ingenious winemaker, Bartho Eksteen ; 'Her,' a Shiraz 2018 and 'Georgie Pordgy,' a Sauvignon Blanc 2020.
It's not just wine, its music in wine. Each soundtrack to her enigmatic wines are carefully written to bring to life the relationship between the wine and the music into a wine-musical.
