Wine of the Week: Rietvallei Estéanna
Rietvallei Wine Estate outside Robertson, is a well known wine producer, especially for its red Muscadel. Owned by the Burgers, with Kobus at the helm as managing director and winemaker, they are the sixth generation of this family at Rietvallei, and yes, you can imagine they have many stories to tell!
Amongst others, the story of the old Muscadel vineyard is probably the most well-known. This vineyard was planted in 1908 by Kobus’ great-great-grandfather and is the oldest producing vineyard of its kind in South Africa.
