WhaleTalesTourism, Food, and Wine news headlines

*   One of the most interesting wines to be launched recently must be the Hidden Valley Shipwreck Shiraz 2009, for which the wine barrels were placed in the ocean at Cape Agulhas during maturation.  (received via Manley Communications)

*   Heston Blumenthal is opening a restaurant in the new terminal in Heathrow, due to open in June next year.

*   Graham Beck’s The Game Reserve wine range is dedicated to conservation, and each of the wines in the range is associated with one of the indigenous animals and plants on their wine estate in Robertson.  For each bottle sold in the range a contribution is made to the Wilderness Foundation, neck labels sharing this support of nature, wildlife, and wilderness, and its conservation. ‘The Game Reserve range of wines symbolizes our unwavering commitment to restoring balance. The symbiosis between our wines, our people and the earth is the golden thread which runs throughout all our actions. Leaving a lasting legacy for tomorrow means we’re duty bound to take fundamental and far-reaching steps today – a responsibility we’re deeply passionate about’, says the Waterford Communications media release on behalf of Graham Beck.

*   Emoya Luxury Hotel & Spa in Bloemfontein is offering its clients a unique ‘Shanty Town Experience‘,  whereby one can stay in a shanty with underfloor heating and wifi, in their game reserve!   The writer’s definition of a shanty town (with ‘poor people’) is insulting!
