Nkosi Sikelel’ iAfrika. This month (21st of March) will mark the 27th Human Rights Day and this year will be the 25th anniversary of the adoption of our Constitution.

If you have not read it then why not do so this month. Here’s a quick link to the Constitution: Understanding basic rights and the importance of fairness and equality in our society is something we should all seek. One of the main aims of the Constitution is to “Improve the quality of life of all citizens and free the potential of each person.” It is in this vein that we value our customers and our staff that make us who we are. Your support helps us to preserve jobs, which supports lives and fulfils potential. Thank YOU.

Happy Sunset Sipping
We all admire the beauty of these early cape autumn days when the warmth of sunlight is succeeded by cooler evenings vibrant with colours ranging from soft amber to deep magenta. All you need left to compliment the moment is a glass of Avontuur Rosé recently awarded GOLD medals at Vitis Vinifera as well as Gilbert & Gaillard Awards. Pick up 3 bottles for the price of 2 this month.

Other wines that received GOLD from Gilbert & Gaillard were our Baccarat 2014 and Talk of The Town 2017. Great work by Janwijn and the team. Enjoy the views from our terrace while entertaining your palate with our biltong or nougat wine pairings. While you’re there why not pick out a gift for that special someone. A visit to our tasting room is certainly worth it.

Harvest Update
The 2021 harvest started one day earlier than 2020 with the same cultivar (Pinot Noir for Cap Classique) on Thursday the 14th of January. To date we are done with all the Pinot Noir, Pinotage and Viognier and will finish with the Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc this week. Soon to follow is Merlot and Shiraz. We have seen good, healthy grapes so far, albeit some blocks 7 to 14 days later than last year and the yield a little lower. The quality of the white wines looks very promising. As it stands we are almost 50% through with the vintage.

Guided Farm Walks
We have some wonderful guided walks planned for March. This is the perfect way to get out and about into the winelands and experience the sights and smells of cape nature and farm life on an informative guided walk around the farm. The walk, starts and ends at the wine tatsing room and takes roughly 90mins at a comfortable and steady pace. R150 per adult and R90 per child (under 12). Price includes a voucher of R80 (adult) and R50 (child) to spend at the wine tasting and/or gift shop. No alcohol will be sold or served to persons under 18 years.
