Tuesday 27th February 2007

Today in 1860, the corkscrew was patented by M.L Byrn! How life has changed since then. At Jordan we offer customers the choice of either cork or screw cap (Stelvin) closures, although more and more customers are now asking for Stelvin.

I’ll never forget the time when Andre van Rensburg and I happened to be visiting a wine shop in Pretoria at the same time, just as a customer was complaining about the fact that the bottle he had opened the night before was missing a cork. As much as Mandy tried to explain that the bottle was sealed with a screw cap, so he was protesting that the wine only had a capsule, no cork. Of course Andre and I looked at each other with intrigue and simultaneously asked the customer what type of cork-screw he had used, as we wanted one with that same foil cutter!

Today we harvested from 8 different vineyard blocks of chardonnay and merlot, in most cases finishing a section of a vineyard that had been deliberately left to ripen further, thus concentrating the flavours.

I really, really enjoyed this. The humor works brilliantly, and the animation is much better than I had imagined. The way you have “blended” (hehe) it all together makes this look like a solid, whole product, as good as any Pixar short. Probably better. But then again: That’s my opinion.
we offer cheap Christian Louboutins up to 35%-65% off, Christian Louboutins is a kind of street style clothing online store, they are all the newest and cheap Christian Louboutins.
