October 2021

 

We welcome the start of summer having had some lovely warm days but 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.

We have an interesting line up of new wines in our stores, along with excellent daily tastings from well-known and newer estates. Please visit our website www.wineconcepts.co.za for details on our tastings at both our Newlands and Kloof Street stores.
