Raffle Tickets, Extended 21% Discount and News - Neethlingshof Wine Estate


21 May 2020  -  Neethlingshof Wine Estate

The weather has turned distinctly autumnal as South Africans make their way through a lockdown period necessitated by the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic. A few short months ago we started the 2020 harvest with gusto, we hosted tour groups and holiday-makers for wine tastings and great lunches and we celebrated New Year's Eve and Valentine's Day overlooking the mountains from The Restaurant's stoep.

The things we took for granted are sadly much changed now and our hospitality facilities remain closed, although wine-making and general agricultural duties continue as normal. We are continuing with our Wine Down Wednesdays through Online streaming on our Facebook page from 18h00 to 19h00 every Wednesday, where some of the best local musicians play live sets.

COVID-19: Chefs Unite for Stellenbosch
For the last few weeks, Neethlingshof chefs Brendan Stein and Bernie Jacobs have stepped up to support local communities and have teamed up with some of the most renowned chefs based in Stellenbosch to support local communities during the COVID-19 pandemic. The Stellenbosch Unite soup kitchen initiative provides at least 20,000 portions of nutritious soup to the needy each week.

Members of the public can back the project with financial contributions as well as donations of dry goods. Financial donations should be made to
Stellenbosch Unite. For food donations, only dry goods (pulses, soup mix, barley, stock cubes, salt, curry powder, pasta (macaroni or penne) should be dropped off at Eike Restaurant in Dorp Street, Stellenbosch, between 10h00 and 17h00 Tuesday – Saturday. Soup vegetables such as onions, potatoes, butternut, pumpkin and carrots are also welcome.

Neethlingshof News & Competitions
The
Anna Foundation team visited Neethlingshof earlier this month to deliver the first of several weekly homework packs that they have put together for all our learners so that they do not feel shut out from education during their time at home. In this time of great uncertainty, the need for care, nurture and ongoing education does not diminish. It is a key priority of the Foundation to ensure that the children continue to be supported in all ways possible and that they do not feel forgotten or left behind. Read more about the Anna Foundation's work during lockdown.

We had quite a few worthy winners of our weekly
#chefschallenge competition on Facebook and Instagram so far, as well as the weekly competition winners of a magnum of wine during our Online Streaming Wine Down Wednesdays.
