Bubbles Hyland was destined for the wine industry with the nickname she was given from birth! British born but now living in Cape Town for the past 17 years she has become an avid ambassador of South African wine. She formed Well Red Wine Magazine aiming to give an educated yet approachable commentary on a wine producing country which is a new world geographically but often leans to the old world stylistically.
Bubbles calls herself a Self proclaimed, unofficial ambassador of South African wines. Moreover, she is actively contributing to the South African’s Women in wine initiative, as she believes that women in wine seem to have been overlooked, but now they are finally getting the recognition they deserve. In her media, Bubbles is telling about the phenomenal professional female players in the South African wine industry.
