Diemersdal Sauvignon Blanc tasting

The Durbanville Wine Valley is renowned for its top class Sauvignon Blancs and Diemersdal Estate is one of the main players. Sporting 8 Sauvignons in their portfolio, this estate continues to impress with its innovation, bringing to life the Winter Ferment, a unique wine made from frozen Sauvignon Blanc grapes. It was a treat tasting through the Diemersdal range of wines which included some of their 2018 releases.

The Farm Eatery is definitely one of the best food spots in Cape Town. Every visit impresses with a new menu that includes carefully selected seasonal ingredients and served in the relaxing atmosphere of the old stable. Guests were enchanted by the story of Ouma Louw, current (6th generation) winemaker Thys Louw's grandmother who perhaps beat all the pioneering women in the wine industry with her winemaking skills back in the day. It's always a surprise to be reminded that Diemersdal is one of the oldest estates in the Cape, with its history dating back to 1698.
