The times they are a changin’, and so are the seasons. As summer gives way to autumn the leaves change and colour the vineyards in beautiful smatterings of orange, yellow and red, and we start preparing for the colder, wet winter weather on its way. Of course this is no reason to stay away, as here at Blaauwklippen we have plenty of things to see and do, to warm you up inside and out through the colder seasons.
We’re always well prepared for winter here at Blaauwklippen. Not only do we have a range of wonderful and warming red wines, from our enigmatic and renowned Zinfandel to the hearty and winter busting Cabernet Sauvignon, there’s also a few specialty products perfect to shine sun on even the gloomiest days. The 8 and 10 year old potstill Brandies are a firm favourite amongst visitors, while the ever popular, dare we say famous, Before & After Aperitif will melt hearts and warm the soul.
All our products are easily ordered online, but why not stop by the farm and enjoy a winter feast from our Blaauwklippen Bistro, which honours our products by perfectly pairing them with a range of gut busting cuisines, with a 6 course paired dining experience, various blackboard specialities that change daily and even a sweet treat of a wine and chocolate pairing as a delightful dessert. Of course the Blaauwklippen Tasting Room provides the ideal respite from winter’s icy grasp, with a roaring fireplace and great conversation providing all the heat you need.
Regardless of the weather, come rain or shine, our renowned Family Market will be there to keep you busy every Sunday. The shelter of the old Wine Centre as well as our yearly tent erected to keep out the elements you can continue to enjoy your favourite weekend activity. Our market folk make sure to provide you with a veritable smorgasbord of the very best winter warmers, from stews and curries to traditional Glühwein, and weekly artists will provide a toe-tapping array of hits to let you dance the cold away!
No need to hibernate this winter, as Blaauwklippen Vineyards supplies everything you could possibly need to chase away those winter blues and warm mind, body and soul. Drop on by this winter, we’ll make sure to keep a seat warm.
