Roy Goslin of Z-Wines selections win the attention of wine connoisseurs and novices alike. Roy has brought in numerous new wines over the past year, many of them outstanding values ideal for entertaining this holiday season!
Growing up in the winelands of South Africa Roy and Dianne were blessed with many opportunities to experience food and wine as the foundations of a sound lifestyle. We lived amidst some of the world’s most beautiful scenery; there were many natural foods available to harvest from the wild; our meals were always made from fresh ingredients and were unhurried affairs often shared with extended family and friends. And, we were introduced to the appreciation of wine at an early age.
