RED WINE! Let's say it together…. "RED WINE!" Today was our full day winelands tour.
I did not realize that South Africa has had its wine industry for over 300 years. Our guide today was Enrico, a native Cape May –ian? He is of mixed race (these are his words) and not connected to one of the tribes. He says the term for this is “colored” which would not fly in the USA.
