The Oddbins Take

It's said that good old Branson named his company Virgin because he had no idea what he was doing; what with his previous foray into the business world being a failed attempt at growing and selling Christmas trees and budgerigars (timing of course was Branson’s downfall here given it was July and during the great budgerigar glut of 1961). Yet today his residency is Necker Island and his personal wealth is in the billions, quite the transition.

Similarly, the Fledge & Co was so named as this is Leon Coetzee & Margaux Nel’s fledgling wine company, starting in just 2007. They spent half a decade experimenting and tinkering with winemaking methods and vineyard plots to find the best system for each variety they grew. Today, along with numerous other lines in a fantastic range, they have a gloriously distinct Sauvignon with a bright palate of citrus, tropical fruit, blackcurrant leaf and a vibrant minerality. With wines like this, we fully expect Leon & Margaux to have a private Island in the British Virgins by the end of their career.
