If you are a parent this question might have you cringing behind the steering wheel. Especially if you live in South Africa and you are on a road trip of note.
I do ask the same question to Mariaan though – every morning. So I have sympathy with her situation with me!
Mariaan does a stellar job in going into the vineyards every day and sampling bunches from specific sites. She then comes to the cellar and makes juice from the samples to be tested.
Following this regime every vineyard has a blueprint of ripening and it also flags us to when we should start tasting the grapes for picking. I would love to say that we only taste the grapes for picking but having analysis to underline your decision helps a lot!
So here I`m filming Mariaan sampling. You can’t hear me asking it on the video, but my next question to her would be…..Are we there yet?
