Private Tasting of Boschendal, Douglas Green, Bellingham & Tall Horse Wines

It was real delight to meet winemaker Jaco Poitgeiter from Douglas Green Bellingham (DGB) group, one of the big players of the South African wine industry. DGB operates three winemaking facilities: at Boschendal, Franschhoek Cellars (for the Bellingham label) and in Wellington where they blend then bottle négociant  wines (bought from various cooperative cellars) for Douglas Green, Tall Horse, The Beach House, Culemborg and Saints labels. My invite for the private wine tasting came from Meenal Kansara, marketing manager at Mohans Oysterbay Drinks Ltd, who import and distribute DGB wines in Tanzania.
