Old Vine Project certification seal

World first as a new certification seal is launched by the Old Vine Project

By Admin | 20 April 2018

All over the world, old vines get proudly mentioned on labels, in many languages. Such is the value placed on old vineyards and the wines they produce. But only in one country, South Africa, is it possible for old vineyards to be certified by a regulatory authority. In South Africa, members of the Old Vine Project (OVP) can now put a Certified Heritage Vineyards seal on bottles of wine made from vineyards of 35 years or older, together with the planting date. This is a guarantee to the consumer of authentic wines grown according to the OVP viticultural and winemaking guidelines.

The first wines bearing the seal are now starting to appear on retail shelves around the world.

The Village Bistro, Seven Sisters

The Village Table Bistro opens at The Seven Sisters Vineyard

By Admin | 1 March 2018

A new bistro, situated on The Seven Sisters Vineyard, has opened in Stellenbosh. The Village Bistro draws inspiration from the roots and heritage of the seven sisters (and one brother) who own The Seven Sisters farm. The new eatery offers a taste of the Cape West Coast in the heart of the Winelands. We’re talking authentic, robust, hearty and wholesome meals accompanied by the fine wines cultivated on The Seven Sisters vineyard.

If you're travelling to South Africa soon, The Village Bistro is the ideal spot to experience South African hospitality at its best. Find out more about The Village Bistro here.

There's been a lot of talk of late about the potential of buying South Africa's fine wines as investments. This is a completely new development, and it's not without its sceptics. But many think the fact that it is being talked about suggests that South Africa's top wines have come of age.   Wine investment is nothing new. The classic well-to-do English wine connoisseur would typically buy more Bordeaux en primeur (the process by which the top wines are offered in the spring following the vintage as futures, before they are even bottled) than he or she needed. Typically, between buying the wines and drinking them, the value of the wines would have increased, so they would sell off some of their wine and, if they were lucky, drink for free.

In Susan's glass

I fell in love with South Africa and the wines a few years ago. The recent MasterChef UK final took me right back to a holiday I had there. They went to the same Game Reserve that we stayed at and we also went to Reuben Riffel's restaurant in Franschhoek the night before my friends wedding - it was great to see Reuben as a guest judge too! Watching that episode seemed like the perfect excuse to open this beautiful bottle of Semillon from Boekenhoutskloof. What a delicious wine!
