00:22 We had an awesome weekend, so buckle up.
00:45 We went to Robertson for the Harvest Festival
01:01 We went to a hands-on harvest event at Graham Beck
02:17 We started out by picking vigonier grapes
04:11 Don’t call South African cap classique “champagne” or you’ll piss off the winemarker.
05:10 Sorting the grapes was a FARCE
07:06 Then we swtiched to this episode of I Love Lucy
09:50 Then we took the factory tour, the best part of which was tasting raw grape juice, which looks like dirty mop water but tastes like heaven.
11:35 Then we tasted “the base wines” (whatever that means)
13:00 Then we “punched down the cap” in some barrels of wine and signed the barrel of grapes we stomped
13:41 And admired the crazy number of bottles of wine fermenting in Graham Beck’s cellar
14:33 And we heard plenty about how socially conscious Graham Beck is! Keep it up, you guys!
15:57 The next day we figured we should go do some wine tastings but after one realized we were all wined out.
16:36 And we had dinner at Rueben’s at the Small Robertson Hotel and it was SO YUMMY
19:06 EXTRA BIT (I wasn’t that far off the mark!)
