Piesang & Jellietot Moments!

Un bon croquis vaut mieux qu’un long discours.
Struggling with your French? Don’t worry. This is what Napoleon said:

A picture is worth a thousand words.

Or it’s been claimed that these famous words were uttered by the little general himself.

I thought that we will put this theory to the test and in this post I want to share two magic Piesang & Jellietot moments with you.  Enjoy!

1. Diners Club Young Winemaker of the Year 2012

The past 18 months P&J interviewed 12 winemakers. Among them was Anri Truter who was awarded the prestigious Diners Club Young Winemaker of the Year award for his 2010 Beyerskloof Diesel Pinotage. What makes this award extra special is that his father, Beyers Truter, won the Diners Club Winemaker of the Year award in 1997. Congratulations to Anri and his Beyerskloof team.

Anri and his wife Nadia with the awards.

Pinotage jou lekker ding!

    Ek is ‘n trotse ma van Sitka. Mag sy van sterkte tot sterkte gaan en ook aan alle jong entrepeneurs – maak dit jou passie en dit sal goed gaan met almal. Sterkte aan al die jongmense wat ‘n nuwe begin wil maak.
