Graham Beck Wines
We keep on attracting Attention!!
Generally speaking we seem to do a 'good job’. We never siege a dull moment. Through the vintage we had had many students passing by and doing a short intern period in Robertson. Yet again we have the privilege to welcome two Sommeliers. They have spent the last couple of days with our team learning what is like making wine rather than just selling wine onto the consumer.

They are Mike Butehlezi from The Signature Restaurant in Sandton, Gauteng - Signature Restaurant boasts an exquisite menu, with a local and international wine menu for even the most discerning palate. Time intended to be spent with family, friends or colleagues celebrating life; birthdays, business deals or enjoying a romantic night out. Great restaurants are a blend of sophisticated cooking, imaginative ideas and respect for ingredients. Mike has been Sommelier here for 3 years. Platinum Diners Club Wine List Award 2009 and 2010 Diamond Diners Club Wine List Award 2011 and 2012.

Then there is West from Mount Grace Hotel in the Magaliesberg Mountains - A fusion of con-temporary luxury and classic charm, the Mount Grace Coun-try House & Spa is an elegant countryside hideaway. Nestled amongst the ruggedly beautiful Magaliesberg Mountains, merely an hours drive from Johannesburg or Pretoria, with sweeping views of the valley and boasting some ten acres of manicured gardens and pristine bushveld, the sprawling property is a balm for the city weary soul. Rambling Vine, where West is Sommelier, has achieved one of the highest marks ever for a South African restaurant in the history of the Chaîne des Rôtisseurs, was voted one of the Best Fine Dining Restaurants in South Africa by Eat Out in 2012 and its wine list has won a Diners Club Diamond award three years in a row.
