Heading ONE: "They" suspect. "They" go. "He" tests. "They" pick. "It" reaches the cellar.
Heading TWO: Monday, the 30th of January 2017 it was time to pick the first 8,5 ton Sauvignon Blanc at "Die Hoogte" - block 15. Alessandro Nel - our white wine maker was there early with team. And so the process started: destemming, crushing ...

On Tuesday, 20 December 2016, ‘round 18h00, just before sunset most of ‘our campers’ returned to Sanddrif Holiday resort where a fire raged for two hours around the actual campsite.

In the Cederberg Wilderness area a life threatening fire burnt more than 21 000 hectares to the ground. It started late Friday in the Crystal Pool area – known by the hikers as ‘Block B’.
Our Sanddrif holiday resort narrowly escaped.

We are exceptionally thankful to the “campers” – regulars and new - who stood behind us unifying as one person supporting us. The biggest percentage of them stayed on and some returned the next day with brand new gear. Tonight, Thursday, the sites and chalets are again fully booked.

We are thankful to our neighbours, Cape Nature, ‘Working for fire’ and many others that helped us.

We would like to confirm some details:
01. No lives were lost.
02. Of the 31 campsites – only two camping sites lost all their gear. The other 29 had tent and clothing damage caused by ash and small burning coals moved along by the wind.
03. Of the 16 chalets – NONE were burnt – only some damage on the outside.
04. Our water system was damaged, but the electric points are all fine. Some of the water system was up and running the same night.
05. There was NO damage on the actual farm, or in the vineyards.

Photo taken from bridge in the river – two hours after the fire moved through the area.

2003 Cederberg Sauvignon Blanc. Simply delicious even at 13 years of age.... not kept in a cellar/fridge either, but kept with much love. Thank you and thanks to my sister who managed to keep wines, but is no longer with us to enjoy them.....

"Which was/were the best?" you asking.
Come on! We're not going to tell! It is our children, remember, but if you have a 2009 some where - drink it on our own - you selfish person!
