Allesverloren a charming place soaked in history

Allesverloren reminds me of back in the day old school generation-to-generation family owned farm living. The type of life where dust becomes part of you as you till your land, birds dotting the landscape. Waking at dark to start your day and having a snooze during lunch hour. Weekends are meant for a time of reflection as you soak up the view on your front porch, oak trees standing guard while your Jack Russel chases the squirrels. This is Danie’s life, a proud farmer who tells tales with gusto and clearly loves the town he is part of – Riebeek Kasteel. The owners of Deli-Co a farm-style butchery and The Olive Shed, are Danie’s friends from the area. We were all invited to enjoy an alfresco meal on this said porch.  With a  glass of 2009 Allesverloren Cabernet Sauvignon in hand and Danie being the fifth generation Malan, how can one not admire the rich heritage that is Allesverloren.
