This month’s winner is Adri Niemand of Hermanus – congratulations!!
Please come in to the shop to collect your wine… The 2016 Wildehurst Red is a blend of Cinsault (29%), Mourvedre (24%), Shiraz (16%), Pinotage (16%), Grenache (15%). After 18 months in old French barrels and time in the bottle, it is perfect for drinking this weekend!

The Stofberg family story started in 1763 when Corporal Jacobus Stofberg arrived in Cape Town and since then they have become one of the well-known wine-farming families in the Breedekloof valley. Not satisfied with making excellent wine, talented winemaker Mariette has also successfully turned her hand to craft beer (Breederiver Brewing) and gin (The Old N1 Craft Disillery)! Join us to taste their ‘Mia’ wines this Friday 14 September (3pm – 6pm).
