Last year I found out I received a scholarship through PIWOSA called Women in Wine, where I together with three other sommeliers. The scholarship included three weeks in South Africa. I was staying at a vineyard called De Grendel and helping out in the vineyard and winery to see the other side of the wine business. We travelled a lot to other wineries and regions, as well as discovered the food and wine scene in Cape Town. It was one of the best and most educational experiences I’ve ever had and I can’t wait to go back. Until then I look forward to sharing my new found passion for South African wine through tastings and articles here in Sweden.
