Michelangelo Rules, OK?

What makes it doubly sweet is that these were wines a notorious Cape Town wine personality refused to taste on account of what he called “ugly labels.” This after the producer had driven in all the way from the Valley of Wines and Roses. The arrogance, bad manners and cruelty of these self-appointed wine elites is incredible and an ugly stain on SA wine. For shame.
