Thanks Andrew for the links you have provided for South African Wine Trip Coverage. I've learned a lot especially in selecting and choosing the best wine in South Africa. I’ve also seen many photos of wine places that show clean fermented process of wine. You are really amazing. I’ll be heading South Africa by mid-September for our company conference situated in S. Africa, I’m expecting a cash advance before going to the conference I might consider going and tour the beautiful vineyards of S. Africa that you have cited. I love wines so I know I’ll surely go and hunt the best wine in South Africa. Thanks again and more power!
