The South African Connection

4.05.13-shaneShane Keck, our assistant Winemaker, has returned from a two month absence where he worked at the La Motte Winery in Franschhoek, South Africa, about an hour out of Cape Town.

Shane was there for the harvest, by invitation, he has worked there before. After two grueling months of harvest here, in Santa Barbara, he took advantage of another two grueling months there. Having a globe with two hemispheres allows for many unexpected opportunities.

He is returning just in time to bottle all that wine he made last fall and he has promised photos and descriptions. Stay tuned.
