Waar’s die dae toe koöperatiewe wynkelders by uitstek bekend (of is dit eerder berug) was vir grootmaatwyn, dikwels van twyfelagtige gehalte.

Wanneer mense nie weet wat hulle nie weet nie van SA wyn en brandewyn

Suid-Afrikaanse wyn is tops!

Oorlede Ronnie Melck van Muratie- en SBW-faam, ’n ware wynghoeroe, het meer as vier dekades gelede só geantwoord op ’n dom vraag van ’n jong Matie-student: “Die beste wyn is die een waarvan jy die meeste hou, ongeag handelsmerk, prys of toekennings.
