Hi fellow wine lovers! I’m Leanne, and I started out on this challenge in June 2016 to be the first woman to visit and blog about all 800 wine farms in the Western Cape. My goal is to visit at least 80 farms every fiscal so that the 800th farm can be celebrated by my 40th birthday. – Oh here’s hoping!
To date, I am a bit behind. Visiting a new wine farm every weekend whilst holding a full time job has its challenges. Phew! That being said, I am still loving it – who needs sleep anyway! I have the most amazing support from my very British family and crazy, wine fly friends.
I’m proud to hold an internationally recognised Marketing Degree from the AAA School of Advertising and today, 10 years later, my love for marketing, events and copy-writing has flourished into content creation. What’s next? Conquering the world and buying my own wine farm of course. But for now, that’s a bit expensive so I’m enjoying learning from the experts on every wine farm visit I do.
My blog is not so much wine focussed but more about the whole lifestyle associated with wine life in South Africa. Our beautiful scenery, the friendly people and various activities involved in the winemaking process. Can you say that you have played golf, been on a safari, train ride, boat ride, trail runs, underground museums, trams and even segway tours involving wine in your country? I think not – #whatstrending? SA’s trending!
I have been overwhelmed with how quickly this brand has grown. I’m definitely not a wine expert – I am just sharing my experiences and what I have learnt along the way. Meeting new people along this awesome journey and sharing them with you of course!
If you have any requests for co-lab content creation, questions or would just like to say hi, pop me a DM – I will be happy to chat to you! Until then, cheers you lovely winos!
