Visit to South Africa - October 2022
12th October 2022
Having not visited South Africa for a very long time, Kasia, Neil and myself decided it was high time to make the journey and visit the stunning wine lands of producers we already represent and to also attend the Cape Wine Show 2022 in Cape Town in search of new wines to bring to Jersey.
It was an incredible visit, the weather was spectacular, the wines outstanding and the hospitality was mindblowing. Springtime is the perfect time to visit South Africa and we loved every minute. Throughout the visit I posted updates on our Instagram and Facebook pages but I thought for those who are not on social media I would post all the videos I took of the various wineries we visited. Hopefully, they give you a little insight into each producer and the sheer beauty of Stellenbosch. If you haven't been before, you simply must go and the exchange is really rather advantageous too!
In the coming months we will be explanding our South African range quite significantly and we can't wait to introduce you to the incredible wines we experienced.
We would like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank Lucinda and Pippa from Seckford Wine Agencies for arranging our visits and stay at Waterford, Glenelly, De Morgenzon and Kanonkop, to Deirdre at Kanonkop for inviting us to to two unforgettable exclusive events during the Cape Wine Show, to Johnny at Bancroft Wines for arranging our visit to Hartenberg and Simon from Liberty Wines for arranging our visit to Spice Route and of course to Kasia who coordinated our entire visit down the finest detail. It was absolutely amazing and we will never forget it.
Enjoy the videos :)
Thanks for viewing. Below are just a few wines already in stock that we love...
Watch this space because in just a few months time, our South African shleves will be transformed!
