We are pleased to have two of our vineyards Certified Heritage Vineyards with the Old Vine Project. Whilst old vines are accorded value throughout the Winelands in the world. It is only in South Africa that this claim can be certified by a regulatory authority. To qualify for the CVH seal vineyards must be 35 years or older. 

Old Vine Project
Both our Chenin Blanc and Gewürztraminer vineyards were planted in 1981 making them 38 years old. The Estate Chenin Blanc 2018 already earning a place in this year's Top 100 SA Wines and an NWC Double Platinum award, impressing the ideology that old vines deliver a specific terroir and indelible characters in the wine.

We recently had Rosa Kruger on the farm to confirm the best pruning techniques for old vines - an invaluable lesson from this highly respected viticulturist and project founder of the OVP.

Consumer awareness, as well as an increase in the value bestowed on old vine wines, has been given further impetus by British wine-writer & MW Tim Atkins. In his recent article published in Harpers UK, he stated that "The Old Vine Project has focused attention on a small but precious resource". So be sure to get some of these 'precious' wines from our tasting room or online.

7even Bouquet Blanc 2019
Our 2019 7even Bouquet Blanc is basking in a new flint bottle that shows off the enticing golden hues of this fruity, floral wine. The exquisite flavours of this wine pair beautifully with light fragrant curries or Moroccan inspired dishes and is a sure winner as a fragrant aperitif.

7even Rosé 2019
The latest vintage 7even Rosé is proving to be a popular choice with consumers and judges alike gathering another Gold Medal at this year's Rosé Rocks competition. A delicious lifestyle wine with fresh ripe strawberries on the palate and a lingering fresh taste.

Sommeliers Selection

 is young, vibrant and well connected to the wants of everyday consumers and is the only South African wine competition judged solely by a panel of South Africa’s top sommeliers.

Two of our wines will be listed on the sought-after 2019 Sommeliers Selection wine list, namely The Tin Mine Cape White Blend 2018 and the Z Collection Gewürztraminer 2016. These complex full-flavoured wines were selected from the 400 plus wines entered from the country's top wine estates.
