THE HOPE OF HEAVEN-ON-EARTH
A fabulous day of tastings across 3 appellations in the Hemel-en-Aarde Valley. Just 90 minutes from Cape Town along the Whale Coast route. This really is heaven on earth, especially for Chardonnay and Pinot Noir fans. From the soils in the vineyard to cellar techniques resulting in varied wine styles.
THE WINE & THE FOOD
Each wine is the ultimate expression of its terroir and indeed an exquisite and multifaceted artwork. Reminiscent of Burgundian and Rhône style varieties. Innovative food-and-wine offering highlighting local, ethical suppliers. Relish in the magic of flavour
THE PLACES & THE PEOPLE
Committed landowners continue to engage with the Burgundian style terroir. Family-owned producers through to cutting-edge mavericks and boutique wineries off the beaten track, including the likes of Ataraxia, Creation, Hamilton Russell, Newton Johnson & Storm.
We had a blast on a full day tour with her, she introduced us to wine makers if she happened to see them when we were there. Introduced us to the region and the history. If/when we make it back to South Africa, she will be the first call I make! – Brian W, NY
