Estate’s legacy is anchored in wines that have stood the test of time.

Looking to repair the lockdown-size hole in your wine collection? Delheim has the solution – fix it with a selection of the celebrated Stellenbosch estate’s classic and age-able wines.

The winery that itself is an octogenarian under current ownership has amassed a solid understanding over decades of wines capable of ageing to perfection. Outstanding feedback from customers who were nudged by lockdown restrictions to open older Delheim vintages motivated the farm to share the good news far and wide.

Every time I visit Delaire I am astounded at the level of quality so I am sure this is going to be amazing! Can't wait to actually try it for myself but it looks too good not to share!

Many of us have seen or heard rumours of research which proposes that plants respond well to classical music.. therefore it, stands to reason this would be applied to vineyards and winemaking too. I've tried their wine and I will just say you can almost taste the love...

I totally believe this and personally sing and talk to my plants in my garden at home, they haven't complained yet ;)

In an interview, Master Sommelier Alpana Singh, told Business Insider that, Natural wine, which is made with little to no preservatives or chemicals, creates what Singh calls a "sometimes fizzy" drink that smells "weird." More specifically, "like a barn yard." Hehe.
