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.

Just off Voor Paardeberg Road in the distance we found a beautiful white chapel that leads to a picturesque scene: the ever-changing leaves of the vineyards.  The tasting room is cosy with a rustic appearance and classic country charm. Greeted by the sounds of a crackling fire, a glass of wine and inviting laughter, immediately made it feel like home.

Fiver by Four Cousins, the ready-to-drink range of fun-in-a-bottle., turns every occasion into a celebration. Catering to a variety of taste profiles, the Fiver comes in three flavours: the popular Cool (apple and lime), Blush (strawberry and litchi), and Dry, a bracing tang of lemon. There’s a Fiver for everyone, whether you have a sweet tooth or prefer a drier style.

Last week I had the opportunity to taste award-winning American #FarmToGlass @richlandrum.africa craft rum at the Vista Bar in the @oocapetown . I must admit I was pleasantly surprised to learn that #RichlandRum is America's only single-estate, single-barrel rum from Georgia, with only the purest ingredients. ' The Rum has been tipped to be at the forefront of the craft rum revolution in this country. While Richland rum is ideally enjoyed neat, our balmy climate often calls for an ice cube or two , I must admit that the classic rum cocktail always gets me smiling😊
