Happy Friday to you all!
Day 155 of Lockdown really brings it home how long the economy has been damaged for. The Western Cape is definitely open for business now that inter-provincial travel is allowed.
There are many reasons for people to get out of Cape Town come to Franschhoek, have a tasting of our award-winning wines while enjoying our famous Wagyu burger in front of a roaring fire, wander down the main road and browse the shops, check out the restaurants for dinner and spend a night in a soft, comfy bed waking up to a scrumptious freshly cooked breakfast!
On the farm, we have had a week of chilly weather allowing us to rack some wines while the guys and girls in the vineyard continue with the last of their pruning. We have been blessed with plenty of rain and lots of cold days so this should be a good sign for the 2021 harvest.
This week marks the 10th anniversary of our occupation of the farm! It has been 10 fascinating years during which time we have got used to pretty much anything that can be thrown at us – lots of laughs, a few tears and many happy memories of weddings, birthdays, a buzzing tasting room, Christmas Eve Dinners. We have worked with some great people who have helped us transform Holden Manz into a producer of consistently highly rated wines! Most of all we have enjoyed working with you and growing our Holden Manz family around the world! Here’s to another ten years!
To mark this special anniversary we would like to offer a celebration case of 3 bottles Cabernet Sauvignon 2016 and 3 bottles Syrah Reserve 2014. Both wines are drinking incredibly well but will also benefit from further cellaring. Normal price is R2,655. Our special offer is R1,850 per mixed case. Free delivery to your home in SA. Limited to two mixed cases per customer as we only have limited stock. SA residents only. Over 18s.
Yours in wine
