Dear friends and other interesting creatures,
One should always be drunk. That’s all that matters…But with what? With wine, with poetry, or with virtue, as you chose. But get drunk.
– Charles Baudelaire
On Route 317 between Bonnievale and Robertson in the Western Cape you will find Esona Boutique Wine owned by Rowan & Caryl. Esona is a Xhosa word, that translates to “The Very One”.
I first visited Esona Boutique Wine 🍷 three or four years ago on a media trip. Today I returned with @SirNoid and his parents.
I wanted them to taste a wine I had enjoyed on my previous visit, with the cheeky name of “Frankly my dear”. “Frankly my dear” is described on Esona’s website as a “Pinot Noir Blanc de Noir – with delightful candies on the nose, a fresh palate and a lengthy aftertaste that lingers like a sunny summer afternoon.”
Wild things we are, we had our first glass of wine before midday paired with the recommended platter which included dried Strawberries. A first for Mother-in-law and I, it was a treat!
“Frankly my dear” retails online at R75.
I wish you enough,
