Out of Africa
Something near the top of my "bucket list" is to learn more about wine! I would love to become a certified sommelier some day. I have some family members that live in Paarl, South Africa which is right smack in the middle of wine country. There are literally vineyards everywhere you look. My mom and brother and I went to visit a few years ago. I learned a lot about how wine is made, what kinds of grapes are used for what wines, and how to taste the certain notes of flavor...however, I am definitely still a beginner when it comes to wine! Here are a few pictures of the wine portion of our trip! The wineries in the pictures are: Nederburg, Zorgvliet, Spier, Seidelberg, and Fairfield/Goats Do Roam.
