Capensis Fijnbosch Wine Farm

Harvest time at Capensis Fijnbosch Wine Farm situated above Bartinney in Stellenbosch.
South Africa’s Western Cape can be called both the oldest wine region of the New World and the newest wine region of the Old World. Capensis skillfully combines these two facets — the oldest and the newest — of Western Cape winemaking. It embodies the unparalleled quality that comes from old, gnarled vines planted in some of the oldest soils in the world, and it represents the young energy of a new generation of winemakers determined to make world-class wines with state-of-the-art techniques.
Capensis, meaning “from the Cape,” is a leader in bringing South Africa to the forefront as a world-class Chardonnay producer.

Franschhoek Uncorked 2016

Franschhoek Uncorked 2016

Franschhoek Uncorked 2016 at Boekenhoutskloof Wine Farm
Lot of fun lot of wine what else? The Chocolate Block
The quest to understand the name of this wine and the wine itself is now the stuff of legend – it’s even launched a graphic novel (see here). While we are not about to reveal all, we can say that the style of the wine is a reflection of our belief that the Cape, with its Mediterranean climate, is eminently suited to blended reds. The make-up of this wine is tweaked from vintage to vintage to best reflect the season and the ancient vines of great character that are an integral part of the wine’s charm and personality.

Benedene and Aldrich Wedding Sneak Peek

A wonderful “rustic wedding” at Rondekuil Farm in Durbanville positioned amongst rolling hills with breath-taking views of the Boland Mountain Ranges and Table Mountain.

This was a very special wedding for me, I met Benedene and Aldrich during a Corporate photo shoot at Clarity Diamonds in Cape Town and they fell “in love” with my style and so I am very proud of the opportunity they gave me to shoot their special day!

Thank you and all the best for the future!
