We had a fantastic time celebrating Heritage Day with our community as part of wine.co.za’s #tastesunshine project. We hosted a braai competition on Sunday, 24 September at our cellar and it was a huge success. The fifteen participating teams had to prepare a meal for the judges and had to make all the food using a braai. Roosterkoek en Stokwors - winners of our braai competition - walked away with a whopping R12 000. Our second place winners, The Lobsters, won R6000 and Porex won R3000 for their third place. The judges consisted of Danie Thiart, Annemarie Coetzee and Bendre van Zyl.
Our judges had a hard time deciding on a winner and all our participants braaied like champions! It was also a great day for the community to mingle, drink wine and eat proudly South African food. Gert Engelbrecht provided some live entertainment and for the children there was a jumping castle and face painting.
If you weren’t there, we hope to see you attend next year! A special thank you to our sponsors: Porex, GEA, AEB, Megafreight, Laffort, Giorgio Gori and Anchor Yeast.
Klawer just received their first grapes for 2017 - Sauvignon Blanc from Niel du Toit. We are the first cellar in the Olifants region to receive grapes for this harvest season.
