The Western Cape of South Africa has been described as one of the most scenic places on earth, and with good reason – it is stunningly beautiful!
Once in a while you come across a place that can only be described as ‘paradise’. We recently had the opportunity to experience just such a place. Called Fornalutx, it’s a tiny village located in amongst the mountains on the north western part of the island of Mallorca, Spain. To make it even better, we had a whole week of staying there in a lovely villa called SA Cova.
Pinot Noir has been described as the “Heartbreak Grape” with good reason. Originating from the Burgundy region of France, this fragile grape has proved to be one of the most difficult grape varietals to make wine from. It is fragile, temperamental, and tests the skill of the winemaker to the limit. The winemaker will often fail to produce a good wine from Pinot Noir, hence leading to much “heartbreak”.
