June 2022

By all reports it seems that the 2022 vintage will result in excellent quality wines. “Due to cool season and moderate weather conditions in most regions during harvest time slowed down ripening, which gave vines the opportunity to develop stunning flavour and colour in this year’s wine grape crop,” says Conrad Schutte, consultation service manager of the wine industry body, Vinpro. “Wine lovers are in for a treat when buying wines from the 2022 vintage,” Conrad says. “We’re really seeing striking colour and flavour extraction from grapes in the cellar, thanks to a cooler season that slowed down ripening and provided the opportunity for these components to develop optimally.”

So watch this space and look out for the first of the 2022 vintage wines which will start arriving on our shelves soon!

We wish all the Dad’s out there a very Happy Father’s Day on Sunday 19th June and hope that you will be celebrating with some lovely gifts and wines from our stores!

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.
