Natalie Roos

After a ten-year stint in TV presenting on South Africa's much-loved KTV and later DSTV's Afrikaans music channel MK, Natalie packed up her bags and left Johannesburg for Cape Town. It was then, back in 2010, that her love affair with the Mother City, wine, food and blogging took hold of her heart.

Natalie's travel and lifestyle blog, Tails of a Mermaid, is a catalogue of travel stories, food and wine experiences and personal anecdotes. Writing about wine for the 20-something consumer, Natalie's blog resonates with an audience who is starting out in wine, leaving the tasting notes to the proper wine writers.
