It can be a challenge to find a special wine tasting experience during the week between Christmas day and new year as the wine region is swamped with visitors. It was our luck that winemaker Jeremy Walker of Grangehurst was available yesterday and took my visitors Rick and Betsy Huber (USA) through his wines. Rick and Betsy had already told me of their preference for Pinotage so an appointment with Jeremy was a perfect match as he is very experienced in both Pinotage and Cabernet Sauvignon. What also makes this wine tasting experience special is that Jeremy has older vintages.
Jeremy's lively approach to presenting his wines always makes for an enjoyable tasting. Rick and Betsy are seasoned travellers and have visited wineries all around the globe. 'Nothing will ever beat this wine tasting experience' said Rick
Grangehurst is located off the R44, South of Stellenbosch, close to Eikendal vineyard. You need to call in advance to check that Jeremy or his wife Mandy are there, Tel 021 855 3625
