Summer is almost here with the occasional chilly morning still reminding us that the variable weather of spring is not yet over.
The vineyards in the Cape are now in full leaf cover and fairly soon they will start budding and the important berry formation will take place. This in itself will determine the size of the crop for the harvest of 2018.
Next month we will be hosting our ‘Finer Things in Life’ Champagne and Sparkling Wine Affair, now in its sixteenth year, with the theme of “International Affair” on Friday 17th November at The Vineyard Hotel!
From 6.00pm – 9.00pm we will be offering numerous cuvees for tasting from premium and boutique Champagne Houses of France and for the first time we will also have a selection of sparkling wines from other international producers including Spain and Italy to tantalize your taste buds. Along with this there will be live music, dream cars, snacks prepared by The Vineyard Hotel. Fine chocolates, gourmet sushi and amazing prizes for ticket holders and the best dressed couple plus lots more!!! Further details will follow soon.
