In September, we remember...
Not often but sometimes the world comes to a standstill. A person passes that we thought would be with us forever. A person that left the world a better place. One such person was Grace Kelly also known as Princess Grace of Monaco.

Today 40 years ago the world said goodbye to Princess Grace of Monaco. She passed away on 14 September 1982 after a vehicle accident. She was known for her beauty, winning an Oscar, marrying Prince Rainer of Monaco and often the most beautiful bride of all times.

When asked in an interview a few weeks before she passed away, how she would like to be remembered she said “I would like to be remembered as trying to do my job well; of being understanding and kind.”

We are proud to be a dog friendly establishment and we absolutely love our fur children.

However, please be aware of the following basic rules to make it enjoyable for everyone.

🐕 Your dog needs to be on a leash at all times.
🐕 Please keep a poop bag on hand to clean up after your dog.
🐕 If your dog is not well socialized with other dogs or people, it's not a good idea to bring him along.
🐕 If your dog shows any signs of aggression towards other dogs or people, it's not a good idea to bring him along.

Dogs are our best friends, but they remain animals and we have to be mindful of that to make it a pleasant experience for everyone.

Looking forward to meeting many more furry friends, so come and visit us.

FOR OUR WINE LOVERS 🍷 🥂 🍷 🥂
GENERAL JAN C SMUTS, KWV, BRANDY AND THE GENERAL JAN SMUTS TROPHY FOR YOUNG WINES.
Winston Churchill often dined with friends, dignitaries and celebrities at Chartwell, his beautiful country home in Kent. He was a generous host, providing unlimited Champagne, cigars and brandy for the enjoyment of his guests. One evening a friend of Churchill's, South African Prime Minister Jan Christian Smuts, brought him a bottle of South African brandy. Churchill sampled the offering before looking appreciatively at Smuts. "My dear Smuts, it is excellent," he declared, "but it is not brandy."

KWV
Although Smuts grew up as the son of a Riebeek West farmer, his most significant contribution to the wine industry came in 1924 when he was Prime Minister of South Africa. During this time, he personally interceded to get an Act controlling wine and spirits endorsed after serious presentations by Charles WH Kohler, founder of the KWV.
To ensure the continued existence of the newly established KWV the government was asked to give the KWV sufficient powers through legislation to control the industry effectively. This event was widely viewed as the turning point towards the stabilisation of the wine industry at that time.

A TALE OF TWO TROPHIES
The story of the South African wine industry has a star-studded cast and begins when vines were for the first time planted in Cape soil more than 350 years ago. Two giants in South Africa’s history have claimed a permanent place in the hearts and minds of all who love wine. Various icons have through the centuries moulded this vibrant industry in various ways. It is appropriate that the highest accolades of one of the industry’s most prominent wine competitions, the SA Young Wine Show, were named after two of these exceptional personalities: General Jan Smuts and Pietman Hugo.

General J C Smuts
A visionary South African General Jan Christiaan Smuts, Boer guerrilla leader, two time South African premier, British Army general and commander, and one of the architects of both the League of Nations and United Nations, surely ranks as one of Africa’s most gifted sons.
According to history records the actual trophy was presented to “The Prime Minster General Smuts” in 1943, where after his family passed it on to the Cape of Good Hope Agricultural Society of old (today known as Agri-Expo) in later years.
For his contribution to the promotion of the wine industry the organisers of the country’s oldest and biggest wine competition, which was first presented in 1833, deemed it desirable to pay tribute to Smuts by naming the trophy for the best young wine after him.
The impressively and beautiful Sterling Silver trophy with its intricate detail was awarded for the first time in 1952 to AP Conradie and has been coveted by wine makers as one of the most significant wine awards ever since. Criteria for awarding the General Smuts Trophy have varied through the years. From 1952 to 1970 the trophy was given to a wine maker or cellar that performed best at the show by receiving the highest points. These points were calculated according to a set formula.
During the four years from 1971 to 1974 the recipient of the trophy was the exhibitor with the most excellent wine, but no records exist about the specific winning cultivars or wines. From 1975 to 1986 the organisers again awarded the trophy for the wine maker that received the highest marks.
Only after 1987 was the cultivar again noted and since then Cabernet Sauvignon is the leader on the trophy list with four wins, followed by Sauvignon Blanc and Shiraz with three wins each. Nederburg holds the record for the cellar winning the trophy most often. They won the trophy no less than eight times between 1953 and 1970.
Faure & Faure and JP Bredell are their closest rivals with four and three wins respectively. Since then no other cellar has dominated the victory list, but Backsberg, Rooiberg, Klein Constantia Estate, DF Malan and AP Conradie all succeeded in winning the trophy twice.
Another highlight in the General Smuts trophy history is when Pinotage burst onto the wine scene and was named champion young wine in 1959. It was entered by PK Morkel from Bellevue and reached the market in 1961 under the Lanzerac Pinotage label.

PIETMAN HUGO
The Boland’s Mr Farmer The Pietman Hugo trophy, for the cellar that receives the highest marks from five best entries, was for the first time awarded in 1994. In essence it rewards cellars not only for the quality of their wines but also for the consistency in quality along a wide range of wines. Pietman Hugo, after whom this trophy was named, was one of South Africa’s most prominent personalities on the Boland agricultural scene during the latter half of the 20th Century. He even turned down the position of minister of Agriculture as he felt that he could serve agriculture best as part of the KWV. Consequently, he served on the KWV Board of Directors for more than three decades – ten of which as chairperson. He initiated a plant improvement scheme for the wine industry, co-established the SA Brandy Foundation and the KWV Brandy Cellar in Worcester, as well as three major grape juice concentrate plants.
The South African Young Wine Show
Presented annually by the South African National Wine Show Association (SANWSA), gives winemakers the opportunity to showcase the best wines of the current vintage.
The South African Young Wine Show dating back to 1833 - presented annually by the South African National Wine Show Association (SANWSA) - gives winemakers the opportunity to showcase the best wines of the current vintage. The eight participating wine regions are Robertson, Worcester / Breedekloof, Stellenbosch, Paarl, Oranje-Vaal, Olifants River, Swartland and Little Karoo.
