AWESOME WINTER GLORY
Winter is here in all her awesome glory and for the first time in the history of hosting our Sunday market we had to cancel, due to inclement weather conditions on the 2nd of June. Talking about awesome glory, we are thrilled to report that our Before & After Apéritif clinched a Gold Medal at the Internationaler Spirituosen Wettbewerb. Cheers to that!

SPECIAL OFFERS & SOMETHING NEW
Looking for some red wines to spice up your winter? We are running a special on the 2007 Barouche Magnum, the winning blend of the 2008 Blaauwklippen Blending Competition. This wine usually sells for R144 per bottle (1.5L) but during this winter you can buy two bottles for R200, a saving of R88! Get yours now! As you might be aware, Blaauwklippen is widely regarded as the South- African market leader when it comes to Zinfandel, a grape varietal that is very popular in the USA. We reaffirmed our commitment to this grape by releasing our first Single Vineyard Certified Blaauwklippen Zinfandel Reserve 2011. The wine sells for R310 per bottle and will only be made in exceptional vintages. It is packaged in a beautiful box and is the ideal gift or collector’s item. Remember, we offer free delivery in and around Cape Town!

WE GO CLUBBING

We loved hosting tastings this June at two wonderful, welcoming wine clubs, VATS in Johannesburg and the Old Mutual Executive Wine Club in Cape Town. Thank you for your hospitality and the kind remarks about our wines!

Talking about wine clubs, we will be tasting all our 2013 Blending Competition entries on the 10th of July. The winner will be announced on the 13th of September. Good luck to everyone who entered and may the best club win. We will announce the four finalists in the next newsletter.
FAMILY MARKET NEWS
The Winter Solace took place on the 21st of June, and even though the days might not seem longer yet, we at the market are excited about the extra hours of sunlight looming!
MISTRESS OF SPICES
Seeing that there is nothing better than a Durban Curry on a cold wet Cape winter's day, we would like to introduce you to one of our traders, Mistress of Spices:

Mistress of Spices and Indian Foods is owned by Daphne Gengiah and was established in 2008. Her spice recipes and curries were handed down from generation to generation and she is happy to share her knowledge with our market visitors.

So remember you don't need to go to Durban to get your spices or curries pop in to Blaauwklippen Family market as we bring Durban to the Boland.
DOGGY WALK
On the 21st of July we will host our monthly vineyard Doggy Walk. The Helderberg Animal Welfare has extended a huge thank you for all your support so far.

CHRISTMAS IN JULY
Be sure to join us on the 28th of July for our annual Christmas in July celebration. This day will be a great opportunity for those of us who have wondered what Christmas in winter would be like. Expect delicious Christmas goodies, music and if you are good, Santa might even pop in with a treat for the little ones!


LIVE MUSIC
As usual, great live music acts will be there to entertain you on a weekly basis, keep an eye out on our social media platforms.
