June wine tastings
3rd June: Sterhuis Wines
Highest vineyards lie on the topmost slopes of the Bottelary Hills, exposed to the crisp ocean breezes and an unusually cool microclimate. It’s so high up here that early Cape travellers would confuse the light from the farmhouse for Venus, the morning star. (Hence the name, Sterhuis.) Come and discover why these wines are as much the result of attitude as altitude.
10th June: Allee Bleue Wines
In the breath-taking Franschhoek Valley, seamlessly combines world-class, award-winning wines with warm hospitality, historic charm and French flair. The estate’s five ranges offer excellent value for money for every wine lover, from the easy-drinking, well-balanced Blue Owl to the flagship Platinum and small-volume Black Series wines.
17th June: Koni Wines
Made from hand-picked and sorted grapes sourced from the Stellenbosch region’s unique and rich vineyard soil types. These are then vinified to produce rich, full-bodied, character-filled wines. One of Koni Maliehe’s favourite quotes is: “Dreams only die, if you let them starve.” With this in mind, she has dedicated herself to creating great wines.
24th June: Bouchard Finlayson
Is known worldwide for producing outstanding Pinot Noir and extraordinary Chardonnay. The Walker Bay estate specialises in that perfect combination of old ways, innovation and creativity. With the focus firmly on quality, only varietals perfectly suited to their terroir are selected. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to savour these exciting, low volume wines.
Tastings are from 18h00 – 19h00 every Monday, year round, and are staged at our Garden Lounge. We look forward to seeing you there!
