Next Meetup

Shhhhh....the best kept secret !!
My Wyn is the smallest wine cellar in Franschhoek set high on the mountain side on the same level as the Franschhoek sign. It is my absolute favourite local wine estate because of the superb wines, the warm and totally unpretentious generous hospitality, the views and again, the wine, some of the best I have tasted. Winemaker Jacoline produces 12 wines, an MCC and also dessert wines. She produces no more than 3 barrels per cultivar and all wines are hand produced and hand labelled. She produces a Rose, Sauvignier, Viognier, Merlot, Shiraz, Semillon, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, Shiraz/Viognier and her masterpiece, Les Grandes Horizontale, a red and also a separate white blend. She also does a superb dessert wine. Her wines aren't found in the shops, only in the best Franschhoek restaurants. Join me for a tasting of all 12 wines (whew) and lunch (moussaka, bread and salad) for R230 per person. If you only want to stay for the tasting, it will be R100 per person. Start time is 11:15am sharp on Sunday 21st October 2018. It is a bit of a steep and windy road to the top but normal cars like mine can do it with ease. Hope to see you there!

    What we're about

    2017 - it's our 10th anniversary this year !

    The Cape Quaffers started in August 2007 with 20 strangers in my house. At the end of the evening, we had become friends, laughing, joking, swilling wine and having fun. Over the last few years, we have visited many wine farms all over the Western Cape, tasted good and... bad wine...., made good friends and had great fun. I'd like to do that again, make new friends, meet up with old friends, taste new wines and visit some special places with special people. Please join me ! We do our best not to be a snobby wine club, so if you know nothing or little of wine, please join us. If you know lots about wine, please join us too but don't be too precious about it please ! All are welcome.
