Investing in solar photovoltaic energy has proved a wise decision for De Grendel, both financially and environmentally, and enhanced the Graaff family’s deep legacy of sustainable stewardship of the historic farm.
We spent some time with Chef Ian Bergh in his modern kitchen at his home in Cape Town and developed some easy and interesting recipes that pair well with our range of wines.
At De Grendel we are in festive spirits after our Gold and Double Gold winnings at the recent Veritas Awards, South Africa’s oldest and most prominent consumer-oriented wine competition.
There’s some more shine in our trophy cabinet as a year of accolades continues for De Grendel with the 2017 Amandelboord Pinotage bringing home Double Gold, along with Gold medals for a quartet of our premium wines, at the 2019 Michelangelo International Wine & Spirits Awards announced on Friday (4 October).
We're delighted to announce that we have won a Gold medal for our 2017 vintage Shiraz at the annual International Wine and Spirits Competition.
Founded in 1969, the IWSC is considered the most prestigious competition of its kind in the world.
In the latest South African Report by Tim Atkin MW, we were awarded no less than four 90+ points for their wines. The annual report was published on 3 September to coincide with a week of South Africa-focused wine activities in the UK.
