Introducing Pinotage!!!

petermay.jpgIt is with great pride that Grape Thinking introduces Peter F May as a blogger on our site. Peter is the founder mmerlot3.jpgof The Club, an international cyber-based fan club for wines made from the variety and he has been awarded Honorary Membership of the Producers Association in 2004, and was a judge at the annual Top 10 Competition in 2004 and 2005.
Peter is a wine writer, educator and author. His book ‘Marilyn Merlot and the Naked Grape – odd wines from around the world’ was published in summer 2006 to wide acclaim and is available for purchase on Peter writes two blogs – one on wine labels and another on Pinotage.

This afternoon we will feature the first installment in a series of 6 articles Peter has very kindly written for Grape Thinking. We are very privileged to be able to feature such a high level of authority on the subject and we hope this will be informative and promote knowledge and interest in this neglected varietal.
Pinotage is part of my ‘front line’ for the wines I will be reviewing as part of September’s World Cup of Wine series. If you know anyone interested in wine – ‘Marylin Merlot and the Naked Grape’ makes for a perfect gift.
Enjoy the series!
