I’m shaking a bit on my legs and some tears in my eyes… when I look back from where I came and seeing quite all the eyebrows and clucking tongues when I started with Spioenkop Wines in Elgin. Now 12 years after planting my first vines I’m awarded “FIRST GROWTH” in South Africa by Tim Atkin. Not sure if I’m ready to keep this honour!

Thanks to all the people that believed in me from the start, to all the agents all over the world and agents that watching me….
