For the first time in 23 years, we are planting new Chenin Blanc vines on the farm for our organic wines. Breaking new ground – or soil specifically – requires careful preparation and planning to ensure the grapes thrive on the vines. Last week, we prepped the soil to a depth of 1.2 metres so the roots could grow with unrestrained freedom across the 2.8-hectare vineyard.
Like most good things in life, patience and timing are everything. So while you’re probably eager to experience these new wines soon, you will have to wait a little – around three years until the first harvest! But right now, you can taste our award-winning and much-loved selection of Chenin Blanc at our Cheers to Chenin tasting experience as part of the Chenin Safari.
If you love Chenin Blanc and bicycles, then you’re really going to love the Chenin Safari. Cycle through beautiful wine farms in the heart of the Cape Winelands, including Spier’s new 20km trail network, while tasting some of the best Chenin Blancs around.
