Top of the Hill Vineyard Walks: New season 2018/2019

11 September 2018  -  De Waal Wines

We hosted the first Top of the Hill Walk three years ago. This was on International Pinotage Day - 10 October 2015 - to celebrate the special flavours of the unique Pinotage grape. As you might know, this grape is close to our hearts here at De Waal Wines.

The initiative back then was two-fold:  Firstly, to welcome and invite guests for a leisurely walk in our beautiful vineyards and to experience this first-hand, with owner Pieter de Waal.  And secondly, to savoir and taste the highly respected Top of the Hill Pinotage, at its origin, in the oldest existing Pinotage vineyard in the world!

This season, we will again start with the popular Walks, on International Pinotage Day. On Saturday 13 October, Pieter will share intriguing stories of the nine generations of De Waal wine makers in South Africa and their relationship to the history of wine in this country.

The walk is ended off with a wine tasting of the other wines in the range and a cheese luncheon on the Terrace. The quality of wines produced at De Waal Wines will be highlighted here. The amazing selection of cheeses on Janine de Waal's beautifully presented cheese board completes this fantastic experience at De Waal Wines.

The New Walking Season kicks off on International Pinotage Day in October!
