In this episode, Shelley and Phil taste through a Pinotage in honor of International Pinotage Day tomorrow, October 9. Pinotage is a hybrid grape created from Pinot Noir and Cinsault way back in 1920. It’s primarily grown in South Africa, which is where this Pinotage comes from. #HappyFriday! #ItsWineTime! #Cheersing
