The Year So Far
I love the feeling of excitement as the festive season approaches and I hope that you will be spending some time with us here at Blaauwklippen. Whether it is enjoying High Tea, relaxing after work at our Tapas Sundowners Lounge, Lunch, Wine Tasting or visiting the Sunday market!
We clinched 4 medals at the 2012 China Wine & Spirits Awards, for the Shiraz 2007, White Zinfandel 2010, Barouche Magnum 2009 and the showstopper that walked away with gold glory, the Before & After Apéritif.
The competition was judged by a hundred China based judges and we are grateful for the international recognition.
Before & After Apéritif
We are proud to introduce the latest vintage of our Blaauwklippen Vineyard Selection Cabernet Sauvignon 2010. The wine is available from the Wine Centre at R84 per bottle. Even though the wine can be enjoyed now, it will enhance with cellaring and has an ageing potential of up to 8 years.
The popular Wine Show takes place in Durban between Friday 23rd and Sunday 25th November at the Durban Exhibition Centre. Many of the Cape’s best wineries will be exhibiting and we hope that we can meet up with our Durban Blaauwklippen friends during the course of the show.
Please visit our stall and taste our latest releases. Ticket prices start at R95 per person and R160 will buy you a weekend pass.

Helderberg Wine Festival Weekend
The weekend of the 17th & 18th of November will be Helderberg Wine Festival Weekend, this means that we will have a Saturday and Sunday market.

Blues artist, Gerald Clark, will kick the day off with some laid back blues followed by Jesse Jordan from 13h00 – 15h00. On both days we will also host an Antique Fair as well as the popular KwiltsinnieBos quilt exhibition. Entry is free. Do not forget to join us for free tastings on selected wines at the Coffee Roastery and our Tasting Room.
