Some could say this post is an attempt to ease my extreme envy at not having been to Lovedale this year, but in my defence a lot of my Facebook feed has been taken up with negative comments. The most disturbing being cases of drink spiking and wineries claiming that boutique wines can cause effects of spiking? I've been to plenty of wineries and never felt like my drinks had been spiked.
As we had seen prior to this year's Lovedale, there were plenty of restrictions on bottle sales and this had been met with some unhappiness. This is a tricky one because as we all know there are a few that can manage to ruin things for all.
Tell us about your Lovedale experience if you managed to go this year?
