Win a box of De Krans wine


It is competition time and two lucky Bloemfontein Courant readers stands a chance of winning a box of De Krans Wine!

Winter is that time of the year when our social lives go into unofficial hibernation and we tend to stay in, develop our home cooking skills and spend our evenings sipping delicious drinks in front of the fireplace, snuggled up under a blanket.

During the past decade port-style wines have both managed to evolve in its versatility, such as the De Krans Cape Pink which is used as a cocktail mixer, and expanded on the traditional styles, for example tweaking a Cape Vintage to produce a lovely and unique dessert wine called Espresso.

It is also almost 10 years since the EU agreement that every port-style wine bottled outside of Portugal from January 2012 may no longer display the word ‘port’ on the label.  Taking into account that there are various styles of port, all ‘port-style’ wines originating from South Africa exhibit the word ‘Cape’ in front of the style, for example Cape Ruby, Cape Vintage.

These port-style wines are available in most liquor outlets in South Africa, as well as directly from the farm. For more information on De Krans and its interesting range of wines and port-style wines, visit their website
