Father’s Day Special

Don’t you just love the falling rain we have been receiving this past week? We think it’s the perfect backdrop for relaxing with a glass of red in front of the fire – be it fire place or barbecue! Our wine maker’s favourite wine for these occasions is our flagship Rhône style blend made from Shiraz, Grenache Noir and Mourvédre.

Speaking of Grenache Noir, our version of its white counter part, Grenache Blanc, was recently described by wine.co.za’s editor Christian Eedes as, ” as good as anything else out there below a hundred bucks” . Join us in raising a glass as we toast it as one of our hidden gems and such a versatile wine to enjoy with loved ones!

To celebrate our good news with you, we would like to offer you 5 bottles of Top Red 2015 at the excellent price of R900, plus we will include a FREE bottle of Grenache Blanc 2017, as well as FREE DELIVERY nation wide!
