A Good Reason for a Glass of Wine


I am rather partial to a nice glass of wine so when I was asked to taste a couple of wines for a good cause naturally I accepted. However, this was no ordinary wine tasting - it's a wine with a story. 
 
The worlds first "social wine" will to be launched later this year.  It's a collaborative work between Tesco, specialist wine company Enotria and Enaleni Vineyards.  The Enaleni vineyards in South Africa are owned by the farm workers and the profit from the wine goes back into their community Details on the ethical sustainable vineyard  project here

We blinded tasted five wines and popped a coloured ball into the jar to vote for our favourite wine. A close call as you can see.

Today Tesco announce the winning wine on their facebook and this being a social wine we all now get a chance to name the wine and suggest a design for the label - all of which gives you a chance to win a trip to South Africa. Check it out here at the Tesco facebook page - give it a go.

That is a nice way to help South Africa by the Tesco firm. Hope they make good tasting wine.

That IS a great cause! Of course any excuse to have a glass of wine is a good one ;^)

Well that certainly sounds like a delightful way to spend an afternoon. And, it's even for a good cause.
