The Wine Feature

A California cult winery makes it to John Maytham's weekly wine picks

CapeTalk's John Maytham says should he win the lottery, one of the things he would by is a coravin.

A coravin allows wine drinkers to extract wine from the bottle without removing the closure. A wine bar in London sells 800 wines by the glass because they use coravin.

John's picks:

Sine Qua Non, the most coveted California wine Shiraz Diemersfontein Chenin Blanc
