It is not that much of an exaggeration to say that Ntsiki Biyela is a South African winemaking legend. She was the first female black winemaker and has been featured for example on CNN and on Forbes (and on BKWine Magazine previously). After many years as winemaker at Stellekaya in Stellenbosch Ntsiki Biyela has now launched her own winery and range of wines, under the name Aslina. BKWine Magazine’s LM Archer talked to Ntsiki and tells the story.

Read all of LM Archer’s article on BKWine Magazine: Ntsiki Biyela, the first black female winemaker in South Africa.

And here you have some tasting notes: Tasting Suo Red Collection No 2 and Stellekaya Hercules from South Africa.
