Splashing into Spring with Season of Sauvignon

Splashing into Spring with Season of Sauvignon

De Grendel signals the start of the spring season with a month full of white wine celebrations. As a part of the Durbanville Wine Valley’s seasonal festival, which matches jubilance with elegance, Season of Sauvignon is the best way to indulge in spring and celebrate the magic of wine.

De Grendel Wines Durbanville Wine Valley Season of Sauvignon

De Grendel’s signature wines are making their appearance in a myriad of merry ways, from special wine tastings, to workshops with guest speakers, and extravagant lunches with wine pairings.

Just 15 minutes away from Cape Town, the festival is the perfect time for family and friends to gather and enjoy live music, scrumptious food and good vibes. Plus, there’s no better way to enjoy the natural beauty of our country than to stretch your legs over our 220 hectares of fynbos slopes with a glass of the region’s De Grendel MCC Brut.
