April wine tastings
2 April – The Bridge of Hope Wines
“We will take you there” is Bridge of Hope Wines’ promise At the centre of this is the ethos of reduction of youth unemployment aligned with uplifting nominated communities. The estate produces a Classic Collection (light-bodied wines that are huge on flavour), a Premium Collection (luscious and full-bodied), and a Reserve Collection (full-bodied, with integrated oak characteristics and luscious berry flavours). Discover them all!
9 April – Blackwater Wines
Sourcing grapes from top vineyards of the Western Cape and building long-lasting relationships with the growers, Francois Haasbroek produces wines with minimal intervention in the cellar. “It all comes down to the grapes, no wine-making tricks – just sticking to the basics and attention to details”.
16 April – Bayede! Wines
Wine fit for a King! To be included in this collection, wines have to meet the stringent criteria of a group of wine masters who carefully select from the best vintages of estates and farms in Stellenbosch, Robertson, Franschhoek, Paarl and the Western Cape’s coastal wine regions. Bayede bottles are finished off with handcrafted strings of beads – this job creation component is endorsed by King Goodwill Zwelithini.
23 April – Landskroon Wine Estate
Landskroon wines are harvested on the south-western slopes of Paarl Mountain. The estate is known for white, red and fortified wines of excellent quality and value. A great illustration is the estate’s 2017 Chenin Blanc (Dry) which won Gold at the Ultra Value Wine Challenge, Bronze at the Veritas 2017 awards and 3 stars in Platter’s Wine Guide in 2017.
30 April – Saxenburg Wine Estate
Saxenburg Wine estate, located between the Atlantic and Indian Ocean, is one of the oldest wine-makers in South Africa and has gained popularity over the years with their Shiraz-specific terroir. The estate practises a system of summer pruning, delivering mature wines of fine quality that has received local and international recognition.
Tastings are from 18h00 – 19h00 every Monday, year round, and are staged at our Garden Lounge. We look forward to seeing you there!
