Just wanted to say thank you so much for organizing the wines for us. We loved the selection of wines. Please also thank Janice for the manner in which she conducted the wine tasting. She conducted the tasting in a professional manner, was well prepared and stood her ground.

There were a few disruptions from our side (incl load shedding) but she kept her pose and continued.

Thank you so much.
