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!
Meanwhile Matthew was up in Pretoria presenting our wines at Chantel Dartnall’s Restaurant Mosaic, one of South Africa’s top restaurants.
We have also had some lovely weddings and beautiful brides. Congratulations to all those who entrusted us with their special day. It’s always a privilege to be involved. If you would like to enquire about hosting your wedding at Vondeling, please get in touch with Mariaan Harris on 021 869 8595, or email email@example.com
|We were also sent a photo from our Yanki cellar rat Viktor who worked the harvest here in February and March this year. He had worked his way up to Kenya and was at a camp on a safari when he found an old friend and drank it!|
Finally we were all overjoyed to get another addition to the Vondeling family. Emile has been making wine with Matthew here for 7 years. After being at Vondeling about 2 years he announced that he had met a beautiful girl, but there was a problem as she lived and worked at Bushman’s Kloof which was just too far away.Finally we were all overjoyed to get another addition to the Vondeling family.

A few years later they were married in the Chapel at Vondeling and last week Hilani gave birth to little Anna .
Be sure not to miss our next food and wine dinner which is taking place at Gemelli restaurant in Bryanston. The menu is designed specifically to compliment the wine and it’s all set to be memorable occasion. Matt will be presenting and there are only 16 seats available.
