I am OBSESSED with the incredible Aslina wines made by Ntsiki Biyela and her  Sauvignon Blanc is no exception. It's bright and fresh, with all the zippy citrus notes you expect from Sauvignon Blanc. Her wines always sell out so grab bottles while you can!

About the Producer
Ntsiki Biyela the first black woman winemaker in South Africa. She is a pioneer, an icon, and an inspiration, with one hell of a story...

Ntsiki grew up herding cattle in Mahlabathini, a rural village in KwaZulu-Natal, under the care of her grandparents. After graduating from high school, her grants for college were not approved, so she took a job as a domestic worker. A year later, when her former teacher told her about a winemaking scholarship, she jumped at the opportunity and began studying at Stellenbosch University in the Western Cape. Despite so many obstacles (like her classes being taught in Afrikaans - a language she didn't speak!) she persevered. Ntsiki graduated in 2003 with a BSc in Agriculture (Viticulture and Oenology) and joined boutique winery Stellekaya as their winemaker the following year. In 2009 she was named South Africa's Woman Winemaker of The Year.

In 2016 Ntsiki launched Aslina Wines to pursue her vision for South African winemaking and in 2017 she was named one of the year's Most Innovative Women in Food and Drink by Fortune.

Her brand "Aslina" is named after her beloved late grandmother who was, and remains, Ntsiki's inspiration.
