Just as expected, in early September we celebrated the first signs of Spring in the form of tiny Semillon buds shyly unfurling on long-dormant vines. Since then, every vineyard block has begun to follow suit.
Although still some months away, our next harvest is a much-anticipated one, as it will be the first in our new winery. We can’t wait to share more about this development… not long now!
A much-anticipated addition to our Estate has been the newly-renovated row of front cottages, parallel to Spaanschemat River Road. We’re delighted to announce that by early November, these will be filled with a range of artisanal craft producers. Ranging from hand-churned ice cream, to craft beer and the finest sushi, from an acclaimed chocolatier to a farm-style deli and café – we look forward to welcoming many more friends to Uitsig soon.
Of course, it’s not just the future that excites us, the past is always worth reflecting on too. So in honour of Heritage Day (aka Braai Day) and the long weekend ahead, we’re giving away the perfect braai accompaniment – branded bottle openers (with every case or more purchased at our Wine Shop this weekend). Owing to the public holiday, we’ll be open on Monday too.
See you there!
