South African Wine Travels with #WinePW

It has been years since my trip to South Africa and to say it was the trip of a lifetime is an understatement.  I jumped at the opportunity to host our Wine Pairing Weekend group (#WinePW) for June featuring South African wines. It came as a perfect time as June 15th is also #DrinkCheninDay, one of South Africa's main varietals.
