Uncork SA was birthed in 2017 as nothing more than a means of reminding myself of fine wines and spirits which impressed me.
What started as a personal memory bank quickly snowballed and became a passion-project of mine.
Craftsmanship is central to all content which features on Uncork SA. Highlighting and promoting the amazing wine and spirits industry, and some of the characters behind the "liquid art".
Over time this evolved to include Luxury accommodation, fine glassware and cigars which naturally fit.
I love the industry
I love sharing my experience with others
I love meeting all the amazing people on the way
Uncork Something Special!
Whilst Uncork SA began as an anonymous page back in 2017, it became a little tricky to build relationships, and meet with the amazing craftsman/women behind these products without removing the cloak of anonymity. So the veil with lifted.
