We can’t think of a better reason to put the Season of Sauvignon on your weekend to-do list, than it giving you the opportunity to be among the first to try the Durbanville Twelve 2015 vintage!
The Durbanville wine route is gaining popularity for its close proximity to Cape Town (20 minutes and you’re there!), and because it is home to a vast selection of amazing wine farms. This year’s Season of Sauvignon festival brings together the likes of Altydgedacht, Bloemendal, D’Aria, Diemersdal, De Grendel, Durbanville Hills, Hillcrest, Klein Roosboom, Meerendal, Nitida, Groot Phizantekraal and Signal Gun. Each will be celebrating the start of white wine season with a range of delicious and delightful offerings.
You can sample each of the estate’s fresh new Sauvignon Blanc offerings and of the course the Durbanville Twelve Sauvignon Blanc 2015. Produced by the Durbanville Wine Valley from a ton of grapes from each of the 12 farms, it’s an amazing collaboration.
