My name is Werner Els. Wine is my passion and I absolutely love its history, its character and how it plays with your senses.
Wine has the ability to build friendships, compliment food, make a day or evening memorable. It is life in a glass. It is the climate the soils and hard work that makes this wonderful liquid evolve, keeping it a mystery that urges me to explore it more and more.
So many times it is the minority that tells the normal (you-and-me) wine drinkers what is good and what should or should not be drunk. I want to debunk that and tell you that you should dictate which wines you enjoy, regardless of the price or how high or low a score the wine was been awarded. I want to explore wine in its most magnificent and its terrible state and from that conduct my own opinion.
I also enjoy making for food. Not being a chef myself, I like to play around with ideas and having avid food lovers and chefs as friends does wonders for my inspiration!
I want Wine on the Blog to become a platform for wine drinkers and food lovers from all levels to ask questions, to be part and share your experiences. So join me on my adventure into the wonderful world of wine and food.
