Oenophiles | Opposites | Gourmands | raconteurs

Married Two Wine was founded by two individuals passionate about wine and one another. They invite you to join their explorative and fun-filled vinous journey that will help you discover your own. Whether you just enjoy drinking a good glass of wine, want to improve your wine knowledge, wow your guests, or looking at elevating your own wine brand, we can assist.

Introducing Wine Affluencers: Samarie and Georgio Meletiou

As we embark on the relaunch of our business, we are proud to present ourselves as Wine Affluencers dedicated to sharing our knowledge and experience with wine enthusiasts. You may be wondering what happened to us after the spirited beginnings of Married Two Wine. Well, while initially captivating wine lovers with our video wine reviews and personal musings, we found ourselves immersed in new endeavours.

Samarie, after obtaining her sought-after DipWSET qualification, is now also enrolled in the Cape Winemasters Program. Meanwhile, Georgio is delving into his Water Sommelier Studies while working as the resident Sommelier at Spier Wine Estate.
Furthermore, we are thrilled to announce that we are building our dream house, including a small cellar to host intimate wine tastings in 2024. But that’s not all—watch this space, as in August, we will launch an exciting initiative that will benefit private wine clubs, groups of friends, corporate groups, and more. We are bringing the joy of wine tasting right into your own home or working space.

We offer a wide range of wine-related services and experiences, collaborating with wine brands and businesses. It is important to note that we do not consider ourselves influencers. Our influence stems from authenticity rather than social status or vanity metrics. We leverage our expertise, credibility, and ability to educate and inspire our audience about the world of wine. We view wine as a companion to food, a travel partner, a love language, and a vessel for storytelling.

While we will continue offering various wine services, as indicated on our website, we are excited to introduce a new addition to our services: WINE2NITE – a social experience that allows private wine clubs, groups of friends, or any gathering of 10 to 30 guests to enjoy wine tastings in the comfort of their own homes or office spaces. We curate themes and bring together wines from distinguished producers, presenting an interactive masterclass tailored to your preferences. This experience allows you to indulge in the wines you love at prices you love, discover new wines you may not be familiar with, and receive expert tips on food pairings. We can even bring in a chef to enhance the experience. Every aspect of WINE2NITE is customized to suit your interests and preferences. Feel free to reach out for more information.

    Malawian born, I remain a barefooted child at heart. Since graduating from Visual Arts at the University of Stellenbosch, wine became an integral part of my career. I celebrate both my personal wine experiences and deep respect for nature through every piece I create.
