Carte Blanche: Refugee Non-Drinkers Become Award-Winning Winemakers.. A good wine is a complex marriage of body, bouquet, and flavour, often only fully appreciated by those with an equally complex palate.
So how did two non-drinking former refugees become award-winning connoisseurs and admired winemakers in their own right? Don’t miss this feel good story on Carte Blanche this Sunday in SA on DStv Now, or streaming from Tuesday on Showmax International if you live abroad (in most countries).
Presenter Claire Mawisa says: “This story is a reminder that, sometimes, all a person needs is an opportunity. From being a refugee with no prospects, to being awarded as one of the most promising sommeliers in the country. Wow!”
A Discerning Palate
In a story of perseverance, passion, and a little bit of luck, Carte Blanche meets Tinashe Nyamudoka and Joseph Dhafana, two Zimbabweans who – having escaped the harsh realities of their home country – went on to make names for themselves in a notoriously exclusive club: that of the wine sommelier.
