October 2020

After a perfect winter with excellent rainfall, with our dams in the Western Cape filling to 100%, we welcome the start of summer 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 2021.

Since we have now moved to Lockdown 1 we now have an extra day of trading although our hours of operation are still curtailed. Our new trading times are as follows:

Our Lockdown 1 opening hours are as follows:

Monday – Friday 09.00 – 17.00
Public Holidays – Closed

Once again we thank you all so much for your wonderful continued and loyal support in helping us through these very tough and uncertain times.

Wine Concepts – In Store wine tastings.
We are delighted to re start in both our shops our daily in store wine tastings from 15.00 – 17.00 Mondays to Fridays. We will adhere to all Covid-19 regulations for the safety of everyone involved. Please visit our website for the tasting schedules for each store.
