Eduard works as a media liaison for SuperSport. He loves fly fishing, all sports and spending time with his family. He likes the smaller wine farms, not the impersonal tasting rooms of the big guys. Whilst he doesn't have a favourite cultivar or wine, he rather focuses on the characteristics of each wine, not caring whether it's red, white, pink or bubbly. As long as there's a focus on quality, he'll be happy.
