Julian's June Newsletter

Greetings Vondelingers
 
The last few weeks have brought some good rains and recorded rainfall on Vondeling was 100mm, which is the ten-year average here for May, so that is encouraging. Our wettest months are traditionally July and August, so fingers crossed.
We are currently installing solar panels at Vondeling, which should cut our electricity cost by more than half. It’s been a difficult decision as one never really knows if, by this time next year, a more effective panel may have been invented with installation costs of half the price! (Computers, TV’s and mobile phones jump to mind that have become better and cheaper).

Julian's May News from Vondeling

Greetings Vondelingers

I have just returned from Port Elizabeth, where I attended the “I Love PE Wine Show”. It was extremely busy and I was showing most of our range of wines including the Sweet Carolyn which costs R225 for a 500ml bottle.
I warn people who want to taste it, that they will not be able to resist taking their purse out if they do sample this delicious offering. Of course, they don’t believe me and I love watching them sip and then their jaw drops and they can’t believe what they are tasting.
Then word spreads and I have punters queuing up demanding a taste. We sold out very quickly and mostly to people who don’t usually spend more than R70 on a bottle of wine.
If you would like to experience the Sweet Carolyn effect for yourself, you can order by clicking on the link below. Remember, if you would like to join the wine club, you get a 15% discount!

Julian's April News from Vondeling

Hello Fellow Vondelingers!

We are still praying for rain! But the forecast is predicting 25mm this weekend, so not converting to “The Whacky Raindance Religion” just yet.

We finished picking on 23rd March (Cabernet Sauvignon). So 2018 was a long old season and the driest since records began. In the end we were approximately 20% down altogether on last year, but the winemakers seem quite excited by the quality. Proof will be in the pudding!

On the marketing side, we have been very busy. Rupert St Aubyn and Simon Leschallas of Southern Wines (our British importers) were out for their annual visit. They arranged some excellent meetings and tastings and a memorable braai with Sheperd Neame and St Austel breweries, both very good customers. We also paid Johannesburg and Durban a visit for our agent’s trade shows and we received great feedback form all our customers.
