Cape Winemakers Guild

The Drift Farm Comfort Zone ‘Whote Bunch Tinta’ 2016

We are told it’s difficult to “step out of your comfort zone”. I don’t have that problem because there’s nothing comfortable about making your living as a farmer. There’s nothing comfortable about our poisonous legacy of apartheid and colonialism. There’s nothing comfortable about the spectre of unsustainable land restitution. I am diligently searching for that elusive comfortable life, for hope and stability and incorruptible politicians. But I do find comfort in the fight well fought, and in planting trees whose shade will grace my great-grandchildren. I find comfort in making unusual, joyful wines and drinking my fellow guild members’ wines. Welcome to the zone.
