Witnessed a little bit of history unfolding at @openwine_za – The superb work of Jeannette and Abrie Bruwer finally seeing the light of day just short of two decades after bottling. For the record these guys are the Bear Grylls of winemaking. Diving with sharks, searching for lost treasure, making emergency midnight helicopter rides to save vineyards from certain doom (yay verily in the nick of time)…wait, that not Bear Grylls!
