One for the wine snobs to think about … Lorries fully loaded with grapes from Villiersdorp on their way to Franschhoek on the other side of the pass in the Western Cape, South Africa. Next time when I drink a wine with a label mentioning ‘Wine of origin Franschhoek’ I won’t take that for granted….
The cellar only produces 8000 bottles per year. This is 2000 bottles of each wine. Virtually all end up in the private cellars of wine collectors around the globe. Grapes are grown organically and no additives are used during fermentation and further processing. Bottled and labeled by hand.
Yesterday’s wine tasting in Napier. Including superb wine created from Italian Sangiovese grapes by Skipskop Wines from Napier.
It’s not in the known wine guide books but in Napier, Western Cape, South Africa, there are a bunch of people creating world class wines of grapes growing in Klein Karoo and Napier terroirs. Production of around 8000 bottles per year distributed on a global scale to collectors and connaisseurs.
