We are proud to anounce that two wines have been selected for The Sommeliers Selection Winelist 2017.

Voluptuous & Rich Reds : Bergsig Estate Icarus 2014
Congratulations to Botha Kelderr, Opstal Estate & Restaurant, Uniwinesnes and Slanghoek Wine Cellar who were also listed.
Joseph Dafana, respected wine sommelier who has also recently qualified to taste at the International Wine Tasting Championships in France, says he was impressed by the quality of wines from the Breedekloof: “I can truly say that the Breedekloof is becoming known as one of the best, terroir-specific wine regions in South Africa. The Opstal Carl Everson Chenin Blanc, with its harmonious and well-integrated structure is incredible. I was also impressed by the Bergsig Estate Gewürztraminer – to achieve such beautiful acidity is amazing”.
He added: “It seems like everything that’s good is coming from that region.”
Reason enough to order wines from this valley from the winelist on your next restaurant visit.
