UK diplomats serve plonk in SA


In a slap in the face to SA wine, the Daily Mail reports UK diplomats are serving plonk and Ferrero Rocher (below) at official functions, to keep costs down. “One guest at a high commission party in South Africa told the newspaper: ‘We were told it was a black–tie do, but it turned out to be in a breezeblock building that was the staff bar. ‘I arrived late and was given the last glass of cheap plonk, only for a lackey to then appear and ask to swap my glass with a plastic one because the real ones had been hired and needed to go back.'”

The UK is the #1 export destination for SA wine. WOSA needs to step in urgently to improve the quality of wine sourced by UK diplomats. Perhaps Sir Lunch-a-lot, Andre Morgenthal, can assist?

Either that or British Consul-General Chris Trott should meet Johan Wegner from www.getwine.co.za to lay in some decent stuff. Whatever next in this mad rush to austerity? Will they be putting up Prince William in a grotty Whale Cottage guest house?
