January 2020 Wine Tastings
6th January: Saxenburg Estate
Perfect natural conditions and a highly skilled and driven team have seen Saxenberg’s wines winning the highest praise, not only in South Africa, but around the rest of the world. Although famous for their Shiraz, their well-managed system of summer pruning means grapes mature to a finer quality and their award-winning wines, both red and white, offer unique qualities to savour.
13th January: Baleia Wines
is the only winery on the lower Duiwenhoks River near Vermaaklikheid and St Sebastian Bay. Exceptional cultivar clones are carefully selected to suit the terroir, and the soils impart a delicate minerality, an expression of the natural salts found here, to these food-friendly wines. Look out for the wine recently named Best Sauvignon Blanc in a Unique Terroir at the annual Novare SA Terroir Wine Awards.
20th January: Allee Bleue Wines
Surrounded by the breath-taking scenery of the Franschhoek valley, this estate seamlessly combines world-class wines with warm hospitality, historic charm and French flair. Their wines offer excellent value for money for every wine lover, and range from the easy drinking Blue Owl and well-balanced Starlette Range, through the premium White Label and flagship Platinum wines, to the small-volume Black Series.
27th January: Chautara Wine
In the Hemel en Aarde valley the Godfrey family’s boutique winery has just one hectare of each cultivar producing limited quantities of their excellent Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Chautara is a town in Nepal where David Godfrey was stationed with the British army; the word also relates to a resting place for tired travellers. Don’t miss this opportunity to discover these rare wines.
Tastings are from 18h00 – 19h00 every Monday, year round, and are staged at our Garden Lounge. We look forward to seeing you there!
