February 2022

February spells romance and in this issue we have some exquisite wine offers and prizes for your loved ones!

In our vineyards the persistent heat, and strong winds, over the start of the harvest season has resulted in several parts picking earlier this year, however many wineries are reporting that what they have picked so far the quality is good! Picking continues for the later ripening varieties some of which are picked by hand and the others with automated machines. Due to the high temperatures picking is usually done in the early hours as vineyard managers rush their grapes into cellars while still cool from the night air.

And of course we have an interesting line up of new wines in our stores, along with our 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.

Please note that we have been advised by our suppliers and farms that the usual annual increases will be effective from the 1st March.

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