I have been contemplating for a long while about starting a blog, and decided that with the launch of our new website, the time has come to finally pick up my pen. My next doubt was whether to write under a pen-name or just as me, Marleen. I choose a pen-name; ‘winemaker’s wife’. Not because I just define myself as the ‘the wife of’.
