Marius Kotze of la Motte and Leopards Leap in South Africa

Clearly a few days can make a difference! I recorded with Marius Kotze (la Motte and Leopards Leap) when he was in town just a few weeks ago. He was participating at his agents' (Classic Drinks) portfolio tasting. Brilliant event held at the Market Bar on Fade Street. Packed to the rafters with customers and filled with excellent wines.  

This interview followed on from an earlier thirty minutes spent with Marius last year. Listen to that episode HERE. Our podcast today must, by the very nature of how Cophid19 has affected us all, be treated as a time capsule. Incredible three weeks.

Marius told us today that,' We cannot sell in any channel in the local market and we are not allowed to export at this stage . We hope government can give us relief after the 21 days to at least export . The harvest is  in the cellar, so they allowed as to make the wines but we cannot sell. For our tourism business it is disaster because both our restaurants are shut down so once things are back to normal again we have to find creative ways to get the tourist back to SA and also back to our vineyards'.  

I expect the word 'disaster' was chosen with a healthy dose of precision.

Keep Safe and Keep Well.


While all restaurants in Ireland are closed right now they WILL open again. We all hope that this is soon. We should remember that many of these, including the wonderful Monty's of Kathmandu, are family businesses. They are often small and brilliant and when they do reopen they will need our support more than ever. Keep Safe and Keep well. 

Kevin Ecock's WinePod is brought to us with the assistance of the Santa Rita Wine Room at Monty's of Kathmandu - an excellent place to host your next event or celebration.
