Ayama Introduces Second Vintage Vermentino

AYAMA Wine founders and proud Italian owners of Slent Farm, Michela and Attilio Dalpiaz, have brought a true taste of Italy to our South African soils. Being the very first Vermentino to be grown and harvested in South Africa, the Italian couple, with a serious love for viniculture, have seen their dreams come true. The first official South African Vermentino harvest took place in 2016, accruing incredible local and international uptake.

The Duck Parade at Vergenoegd Estate

The Duck Parade at Vergenoegd has definitely fast become one of my favourite weekend hideaway activities! It's such fun to watch these fascinating, strange Indian Runner Ducks do their thing. A family outing with the folks, child-friendly and welcoming, loads of variety and things to do, or a sneaky morning with your significant other, Vergenoegd has a spot ready for you!

Kanonkop takes innovation to another level with this automatic stamping/mixing machine specially made.

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 ;)

The Italians call it “la dolce vita” - the sweet life. More than just a saying, it’s a lifestyle which revolves around good food, good wine and great company. Speaking of savouring the sweet life, few things are more Italian than Sangiovese and lasagne.
