I joined the Riebeek Wine Valley company team to share in the excitement of the highly anticipated launch of the Kasteelberg Chenin Blanc MCC. Born from a love for this place and its people, Riebeek Valley Wine Co. presented their new Kasteelberg Chenin Blanc MCC with pride. This range is a passion project where hand-selected grapes from the foothills of Kasteelberg mountain become the pinnacle of their winemakers’ art.

We had the absolute pleasure of joining Vergenoegd Löw The Wine Estate welcome Adam & Eve 2019 Limited Merlot Collector’s Edition, a bespoke collection made from pure Merlot grapes far more alluring than forbidden fruit. A match made in Eden Vergenoegd Löw The Wine Estate is essentially paradise for wine lovers. Perfectly positioned between mountains and ocean, the estate boasts highly diverse soil, and the cool sea breezes assist in the slow ripening of the grapes. This unique positioning is one of the reasons why Adam & Eve 2019 Limited Merlot Collector’s Edition is unrivalled in the industry.

The 40 th Anniversary Edition of the Best-Selling Annual

Platter’s by Diners Club South African Wine Guide 2020 was launched at Cape Town’s Table Bay Hotel on 8 November 2019 with over 230 guests in attendance, the VIPs including the wine producers who achieved the maximum 5-star rating in the new edition. This accolade is reserved for wines that are “South African classics” and score 95 points or more on the internationally recognised 100-point scale.

Uncanny Wines are South Africa’s very first certified wines packaged in cans. These premium quality wines in a beautifully designed 250ml package are the proudly South African response to the skyrocketing international trend of canned wine. “We’ve combined South Africa’s established winemaking traditions with brilliant innovation and great design to create an exclusive, premium quality wine offering in environmentally friendly packaging,” explains Arnold Vlok, co-owner of Uncanny.

I cant think of a better way than to kickstart the festive season on a fashionable high note at the annual Franschhoek Cap Classique & Champagne Festival, ‘The Magic of Bubbles’, presented by Sanlam Private Wealth.

One of SA’s premier social calendar highlights this year’s event takes place over the weekend of 30 November and 1 December at the iconic Huguenot Monument.
