It has been an extremely dry winter and traditionally we don’t get much rain from now until after next year’s harvest. This poses a problem for the growing season and next year’s yield, but on the bright side there is plenty of the wonderful 2015 vintage available. To avoid a thirst, we suggest you stock up prior to the festive season. A few bottles of Cap Classique in the fridge will go a long way to satisfying visiting friends and family over the holiday period. To simplify your gift shopping, we also have plenty of options, such as carry packs, bubbly gift boxes and Magnums.


For most of us there will be multiple dining occasions over the next three months and the suitability of our wine with food was confirmed by The Sommelier Selection Awards where our Bush Vine Sauvignon Blanc 2014 received a Trophy for "best fresh and crunchy white". Our Domaine Grier Rose picked up a Trophy for "best foreign wine" and our Domaine Grier Chardonnay was recommended. Our Tradition Brut was also recommended as Cap Classique by the glass.





The great value that our wines represent was confirmed by 4 gold medals in the Gold Wine Awards for Down to Earth Red 2013, Chenin Blanc 2014, Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 and Merlot 2013.
At the Michelangelo Awards we were rewarded with 3 gold medals for Monro Red 2009, Bush Vine Sauvignon Blanc 2015 and Merlot 2013.
Our bubblies also performed well internationally, where we received a silver outstanding for our Monro Brut 2009 (soon to be released) and a silver for our Brut Natural 2011.
We also received a Gold and best Rosé Bubbly award for our Woolworths MCC Brut Rosé, in the "Rosé Rocks" challenge.

At the Veritas Awards, South Africa’s most prominent wine competition, we also performed well. We received numerous silver and bronze awards but our Cap Classiques were the outstanding performers. We received Double Gold for Monro Brut 2008 and Gold for our Tradition Brut N/V.



Summer Bubbly Celebration

Monica Voysey, Mezzo-Soprano singer, was such a big hit at our Bastille Day Celebration that we have asked her to once again turn on her magic, at a Summer Celebration of our Cap Classique in November. The idea is to again combine Opera, bubbly and food. Chef, Marc Wassung, from "Sing for your supper," will prepare appropriate accompaniments to our range of Cap Classiques.


It will be a lunch time Garden Party and Monica will sing carefully chosen pieces to accompany each bubbly. You are welcome to join us for this celebration and the details are as follows:
When: Saturday, 21 November 2015
Time: 11h30 - 15h00
Where: Villiera Lawn, Corner R304/R101, Koelenhof
Price: R300.00
Booking: before 13/11/2015



Domaine Grier
After a relatively warm early summer, conditions cooled down in the South of France and the harvest began on the 7th of September, which is an average start date. At this stage we are expecting a good harvest and we are looking forward to discover what our new block of merlot can deliver.
