With its cellar having received more than 700 medals and awards (including multiple Veritas and Michelangelo double gold and gold awards) in the past 30 years, De Krans Wine Cellar is definitely a must-have for any oenophile.
De Krans Wine Cellar is situated along the upper reaches of the picturesque Gamka River Valley in Calitzdorp in the Klein Karoo. The rich and long history of the farm dates back to 1890, when it was bought by the Nel family.
Port style wines such as the De Krans Original Cape Pink make for a refreshing cocktail mixer with ginger ale, crushed ice and mint. Even the De Krans Cape Tawny Limited Release and the Espresso are both wonderful served chilled in summer (visit the De Krans website for a list of fun cocktail recipes including the chilled Espresso Martini).
Treat your guests to a special Platter 5-star glass of De Krans Cape Vintage Reserve (its flagship) with well-aged cheeses, or its Espresso, a dessert wine with subtle grounded coffee flavours on the aftertaste.
One lucky Bloemfontein Courant reader stands a chance to win a box of De Krantz wine, which includes six bottles. The winner will be announced on 19 July 2019 at 11:00.
