I’m not a celebrity watcher, and I even had to check up first – but yes, Sam Branson is Richard Branson’s son, and heir to his £3.4 billion fortune. Well Sam just got married to his beautiful bride, actress Isabella Calthorpe, at his dad’s luxury retreat in South Africa, and he requested Grangehurst Pinotage for the wedding breakfast which reportedly went down very well indeed – as you would expect from such a top class wine.
The wedding was attended by plenty of A-listers of course including Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie, and Isabella’s youngest sister Cressida Bonas, who is Prince Harry’s latest romantic interest.
Grangehurst is well known in South Africa as one of the country’s finest wineries despite being a tiny hands on operation, so this high profile event attended by plenty of Brits may well spread the word and give them good publicity over here as well.
If you want to try the wine they were all drinking it is imported by www.goodwineonline.co.uk and available at £17.95 per bottle while stocks last (which won’t be long!). But the good news is they sell the entire Grangehurst range, and Grangehurst are Wine Magazine South Africa’s most awarded 5 star winery, so you know their wines are something special!
