I didn't have any experience of presenting a wine before my first week of work placement at Wine.co.za, where I was asked to present a new red blend wine pack to their team as a blind tasting. They had to guess the Wineries and the prices for each of the blends. I thought to myself " Wow this is going to be fun!".
This was the first time that the auction was held on one day only and seasoned auctioneer David Elswood did a sterling job keeping it fresh and interesting even though it went over time by about an hour. This did not seem to deter any of the serious punters as there was more than enough delicious sustenance flowing.
