Our Sparkling Fridays and Fortified Saturdays will return to the Tasting Room in May 2017.
We look forward to you joining us for these and many other events over the season.
We invite you to join us on Fridays for your chance to taste Ella, our sparkling wine. This traditional-method wine is made from Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Hand riddled, hand degorged, hand labeled, this wine truly is a labour of love for winemaker Bertus Albertyn. We will be selling the Ella every day, but will only be tasting it on #Sparkling Fridays!
Fortified Saturdays are back at the Tasting Room. The wine has been changed a little with a new name “Fia” and a new co-fermented blend of Syrah and Merlot. This a still a truly traditional “port” style wine, smooth elegant and robust. It has been barrel aged for 20 months and is drinking wonderfully now but will cellar beautifully.
It is available for sale at the Tasting Room every day, but only available for tasting on #Fortified Saturdays.
