THE BEST KEPT SECRET...
...about winters in Stellenbosch are those crisp sunny days we get treated to every so often. Sunny enough to make one forget that it is actually RED WINE season! Luckily we have just released the 2014 vintage of our Cultivar Selection Chenin Blanc and Rosé, perfect for those bright winter’s days. Both wines sell for R42 per bottle.

If you prefer something in RED our latest vintage Cultivar Selection Cabernet Sauvignon 2011 was released and sells for R69. Do not miss the chance to stock up.

REDDY, STEADY GO!
On the topic of red wines, we are running a heart-warming promotion at our Wine Centre: When you purchase five bottles of our Blaauwklippen RED during July, you will receive the sixth one for free! After stocking up on those reds, treat yourself to a wonderful winter warmer and try our Glühwein recipe.

There's nothing better for winter than a delicious glass of traditional, hearty Glühwein to warm your heart and soul. Glühwein is a traditional German mulled wine served during the winter months and in particular the Christmas markets of Germany. Come and taste some at our Christmas in July Market, taking place on the 27th!

Home-made Glühwein:

Recipe:
1 bottle Blaauwklippen RED wine
2-3 oranges cut in half
1 cup of sugar
2 cinnamon sticks broken in half
10-15 whole cloves or large pinch of ground cloves
Pinch of allspice
Pinch of ground nutmeg
Brandy to taste

Empty the bottle of wine into a heavy saucepan. Squeeze orange halves into wine and add the juiced halves. Add sugar and spices and cook covered over medium heat. Turn off wine just before it begins to boil, leave mixture covered for about an hour so the spices can steep. Uncover and strain back into wine jug. Heat individual cups covered in microwave for about a minute add a splash of brandy and serve. The Glühwein can be kept in the refrigerator for up to two weeks.

BLAAUWKLIPPEN FAMILY MARKET

With the Winter Solstice behind us we are looking forward to longer days and shorter nights, which means that the arrival of spring is not too far away.

Not that we are afraid of winter rains, because we are ready to host you, come rain or shine, under our weather proof tent.
MUSIC FOR THE SOUL
To keep the winter spirits warm we have some great entertainment lined up during July: On the 6th, market favourite Stuart will be performing and we welcome back Peter Wyness on the 13th, while Newton Theron will be back on the 20th.


DOGGY WALK
As the 20th is the third Sunday of the month, we are happy to welcome back our friends (furry and human) from the Helderberg Animal Welfare society to the market for our monthly Vineyard Doggy Walk fundraiser. Entry to the walk is R20 per person and dog and the walk starts at 10h00.


CHRISTMAS IN JULY
On Sunday the 27th we will host our annual Christmas in July market. This year we have organised a 6-piece band, ‘Free Wheel’, to perform Christmas and contemporary hits to help create the Christmas atmosphere. The traders at the market will also get into the spirit of Christmas by decorating their stands accordingly. Rumour has it that Santa will pop away from his sunny beach holiday in the Northern Hemisphere to visit us on the day to spoil the little ones to a sweet treat!
