Mary-Lou Nash: Moves to South Africa and becomes a Winemaster!

  1. Mary-Lou Nash: Moves to South Africa and becomes a Winemaster! Carl Landau, Mary-Lou Nash 1:06:39

In 1995, Mary-Lou Nash showed up in South Africa on a whim with just a backpack. And she never left. Today she is a Winemaster of her own brand, Black Pearl Wines, producing some of the best wines in the country and it’s even sold in some high profile locations in the US.

She was born in England, grew up with a determined New England attitude and has thrived in South Africa. She had no experience in growing grapes, harvesting or making wine. In fact, before arriving in South Africa she was a beer drinker and who occasionally would drink cheap jug wine. 

Her story is one of taking chances, a lot of hard work and dogged perseverance. She even shares a recent harrowing experience that has led her to an entirely new lifestyle, which she explains and now loves. Mary-Lou Nash is a true inspiration!
