Brammer, welcomed senior diplomatic representatives of African Embassies and an Honorary Consulate to taste some excellent, upcoming wines created by young South African BEE wine makers. The professional wine seminar was conducted by architect Gisela Schneidewind who is also owner of Stein+Wein. This company passionately promotes South African wines through tastings and events.
