Curiosity pays a high return! That is how I prefer to think, seeing as the more common understanding is curiosity killed the cat. We are on holiday in Italy. Expectations are high, and so far, the country has not disappointed. When I started this blog, it was specifically to write about South African wines. I found it fairly difficult to find any material on the internet, that was independent of the producers (wine farms), if you had any form of enthusiasm about South African wines. Old world countries like Italy, France and Spain do not need a story to be sold about their wines. Wine with friends really ought to not have borders, so let’s make these borders porous.
