Wonderful wine woes...

I was thrilled when the Captain asked me to start off his wine cellar. I dreamt of roaming the Cape winelands, tasting my favorite wines and searching for small quality producers with a notepad and his credit card.

However, when I started drawing up my dream wines list, I realized that the task at hand was much more difficult than I anticipated and called in the help of Miss TK, (un)official best assistant winemaker of the year. I would not have been able to draft an objective list or source the wines without her - and yes TK, you can hold the paddle at the auction later this year.

We have to trim the list even more as we are a tad over budget, but currently we stand at 872 bottles with an average of R150/bottle. Not to bad, me thinks...
