From harvest to winelands game drives, catch up with the latest news and special offerings at Villiera Wines in Stellenbosch.
After a good harvest this year, it has remained dry in the Cape while the rest of the country is flooding. However, the autumn colours are appearing and winter will be upon us soon.
In the cellar at Villiera Wines, the white blends have been determined and the bottling line is running flat out to package the new wines for delivery to our customers. The next stage is to taste all our Cap Classique base wines to determine the blends for bottling in August.
Around the world, markets are subdued but there is still good interest in our wines. Our major problem is poor availability of packaging materials and containers for shipment. Good planning is required under the current circumstances and that is where we excel. This means we should be able to keep all of you supplied.
The Winter Feast is back!
We are delighted to announce the return of our much-anticipated Winter Feast, hosted by cellarmaster Jeff Grier and our winemakers.
Guests will be welcomed with Monro Brut and Grier Brut upon arrival. We’ve teamed up with the Goose Roasters who will treat you to a 4-course lunch, each course complemented by a Villiera and a Domaine Grier wine. As the temperature drops and winter sets in, we will transform our cellar into a warm and cosy venue to embrace this special occasion.
