Canned wine may currently be getting consumers’ attention but, in reality, it is not new – already in the mid-1930s three sweet wines made their appearance on the American market. Californian Smile with Vin-Tin-Age Port, Tokay and Muscadel were presented in flat top tins (as pull-tops were not yet invented) which had to be punctured in order to pour out the contents.

Summer in the winelands are spectacularly seductive surrounded by lush vineyards, picture-perfect scenery as well as world-class wines and great cuisine. The warm hospitality at the tasting room of Wellington Wines in the Bovlei building offers visitors to this quaint Boland town a signature welcome.  Even younger visitors are catered for with a specially adapted tasting.  Bring along your own picnic basket or order a platter from the Bains Café coffee shop.

Krone, home to vintage-only, handcrafted Méthode Cap Classique, on the historic Twee Jonge Gezellen estate in Tulbagh, have released South Africa’s first terroir specific MCC: the Krone Kaaimansgat Blanc de Blancs 2016. Sculpted by the vintage and harnessing the intrinsic energy of the iconic Kaaimansgat (Crocodile’s Lair) Chardonnay vineyard near Villiersdorp, this single-vineyard terroir-specific vintage cuvée is rooted in time and place.

The 2019 vintage was collectively celebrated with more than 300 guests attending the annual SA National Young Wine Awards this past weekend. This grand affair was hosted by the Robertson Wine Valley, presenting these exquisite silver trophies with the flair and elegance they deserve at the stately Angora Stud Farm in Bonnievale.
