Located at the very entrance to the picturesque Valley of Franschhoek, Franschhoek Cellar is a destination for great hospitality, food, and of course outstanding wines. The recent global pandemic has presented many challenges for the industry as a whole, but we now look ahead to what the new vintage has in store for us. Franschhoek Cellar Winemaker, Ryan Puttick, says “The truth is that Mother Nature waits for no one – no matter the circumstances. The vines continue to grow, and we need to be ready, and on the 2nd February, our 2021 Harvest began. The first pickings of Sauvignon Blanc came in, followed by Chenin Blanc and the first lots of Malbec.” In reflecting on this tumultuous time, Ryan shares that the vineyard has taught him how to think about other things in life – celebrate the small milestones as and when they arrive because you never know what’s around the corner. We look forward to the next parcels of grapes to arrive, and cannot wait to sample the first wines of the 2021 vintage’’.
