Wines we like
We love dry & fruity wines. When talking about red wines, we prefer the ones with a beery flavour. As a white wine, we go for a Sauvignon Blanc or a Chenin Blanc / Blanc de Blanc.
Our No. 1 favourite is and remains the 'Zinfandel' from the wine estate Blaauwklippen in South Africa. Blaauwklippen 's estate is beautifully located in the Stellenbosch area. Their wines can be bought in Europe as well but they offered me a direct shipment (estate to airport) to Germany. If you are interested in a collective order from Blaauwklippen, send us a mail to Carrotkingatt-online.de (pls replace at by @ ).
During our tour to South Africa in March 2004, we came across other very nice wines:
We have got details of most of the agents importing South African wine to Europe / Germany. Depending on it's quality and the wine estate, South African wine can be purchased from about EUR 10 / bottle. If you are interested in South African wines, please send your mail to Carrotkingatt-online.de (pls replace at by @ ). I would then try to organize a collective order.
And when you are in South Africa / winelands, do not miss out on the wine estate Boschendal. Apart from having an excellent white wine (the Boschendal Grand Vin Blanc), their estate is beautifully located on the main road from Franschhoek to Stellenbosch. They also offer the possibility for a pique-nique on their lawn
The basket as well as their wines can be purchased from 12 o'clock onwards. Pre-booking is essential for this treat.
