This month on the 24th March we will be hosting our 3rd Celebration of Chenin Blanc and Pinotage at The Vineyard Hotel from 17.00 until 20.00. Our “Local is Lekker” festival gives wine lovers the opportunity to taste a fine selection of diverse and enticing Chenin Blanc’s along with captivating Pinotage’s from 40 of the country’s top producers.
This year, to highlight the two varieties’ stylistic versatility, we will also offer “Cape” style blends, which have a Chenin Blanc dominance in the white blend or minimum 35% Pinotage in the red blend, or even a bubbly, rose or dessert wine made from these two grapes. Read more
