Although harvest is slightly later than last year, we are close to starting harvesting and things are looking very promising for a great season, with some fantastic wines to follow.

The Salt Road at Neethlingshof
Now that the alcohol ban is a thing of the past, you can once again enjoy our wines alongside some fabulous lunches from The Salt Road in our wine garden. The Salt Road is serving a great selection of pizzas, light mains and sweets and provides a great option for a laid-back lunch or "kuier" with friend (see menu here).

As a special treat for Valentine's Day this year, The Salt Road is preparing a stunning dessert of rosemary marinated peaches, whipped lemon cheesecake, white chocolate ganache, caramelized white chocolate and candied pistachios, paired perfectly with The Six Flowers. Book a table and join us on Valentine's Day for a delicious lunch, ended off with this romantic treat!

Old Vine Status for Weisser Riesling & Sauvignon blanc blocks
Old vines often get a proud mention on wine labels around the world, but only in South Africa is it possible for that claim to be certified by the regulatory authority. Here, members of the Old Vine Project (OVP) can put a Certified Heritage Vineyards seal on bottles of wine made from vineyards of 35 years or older, as well as the planting date.

Old vines make wines with a unique character, and we are proud that this year two of our blocks are reaching Old Vine status. One is a block of Sauvignon blanc (NEV184/193) that is still performing quite well, and the other is the block of Weisser Riesling (NEV 301/303) from which our award winning The Maria Noble Late Harvest is produced.
