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.

THE award-winning KWV range of elite wines, The Mentors, presents its new and bright star – a once-off, limited edition of less than 1000 litres, sequentially numbered bottles of The Mentors Carménère 2017

 

The wine joins a rare breed that is one of South Africa's most awarded ranges and a pinnacle in winemaking reserved for the finest in class. At the same time, its launch is a precursor to an exciting series of superlative, rare and limited-edition releases of The Mentors wines.

Journey’s End Vineyards (situated on the mountain slopes above Sir Lowry’s Pass Village near Somerset West), one of South Africa’s most sustainable and experimental wineries, is revamping its range of wines to give clear differentiation between its three series - Tales, V and Precision - while maintaining a consistent theme across the family of wines.

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😊
