The Upper Blaauwklippen Valley is home to some of the most serene wine country landscapes in South Africa. It’s this rustic country charm that draws visitors to the Vintners’ tasting – to share in the passion for fine wine and terroir with the owners of the wine farms themselves.

This years’ experience takes place on Saturday June 8 from 11am to 4pm.

A visit to the Vintners’ tasting feels like an escape to the country, where guests can hear the stories behind the wines and the farms, relax and meander through vineyards, glass-in-hand, or hop on the free shuttle provided on the day to explore all aspects of this hidden gem.

Wine enthusiasts are invited join the owners and winemakers of three boutique, family-owned farms, Kleinood, Keermont, and De Trafford, as they provide visitors with rare access to their farms to taste newly-released, hand-crafted vintages, as well as rare and coveted vinoteque wines.

These producers all strive for the lightest footprint on the landscape with their small, sustainable vineyards and wineries. Crafters take great pride in creating delicious wine while being in touch with nature. In the valley, the beauty of nature is inescapable and is reflected in all the wines.

The topography, elevation, and proximity to the ocean create an ideal climate, and the decomposed granite soils, in which the vines grow, result in structured, complex wines.

To participate in this very personal premium tasting experience, with very limited tickets available at R600 each, send an email to Wiena van Wyk on [email protected] or call 021 880 2527. The tasting takes place in the Upper Blaauwklippen Valley just off the R44 between Stellenbosch and Somerset West on Saturday the June 8 from 11am to 4pm.
