A short teaser by South African top selling lifestyle magazine programme Top billing has ignited a lot of excitement among the Zimbabwean folk after showing one of the country’s best wine makers Sommelier Tongai Dhafana on the show.
The full programme which will air this Saturday is eagerly awaited by most people in order to witness Dhafana as a guest. Dhafana is a Zimbabwean who is based in South Africa and a renowned wine maker. He is also the head sommelier at La Colombe restaurant in Cape Town.
Dhafana is such a big name in South Africa and his wine making skills are exceptional. Earlier this year he bemoaned lack of interest by the Zimbabwean government to patner with him in order to produce wine locally. Dhafana alleged that he had made several efforts to engage the ministry of tourism and culture as well as the ministry of agriculture to no avail. He said the authorities had exhibited lack of interest. Dhafana said that he was keen to work with the ministries to ensure that Zimbabwe becomes a wine producing country.
All eyes will be glued on SABC this Saturday as Dhafana is interviewed on his business venture.
