Louisevale Wines in Stellenbosch
Early on Saturday morning the 20 February 2016 we arrived at Louisevale Wines for a “Cheese platter & wine tasting experience.”
We were scheduled to be there at 10:00 but we arrived at 09:30. Mogamat, who was hosting the wine tasting was busy preparing the veranda where most of the tasting would take place, given the great weather we are experiencing!
His wife Yvonne, is responsible for the decadent cheese platters that goes with the wine tasting.
Mogamat, started us off with the unwooded wines first, explaining in detail each wine that we tasted, the where, what, why and the how of the various wines.
We then started on the red wines, I am a red wine lover and I LOVED the Shiraz.
Mogamat’s knowledge was extraordinary with us absorbing as much as we could.
Having not known about Louisevale Winery before now I was delighted to have finally come across it and would highly recommend a visit to taste and experience their excellent award winning wines and the sure warmth and hospitality of Mogamat.
You can purchase the wines you have tasted and I have to admit that they were very reasonably priced.
Louisevale Wines recently won a couple of accolades and their Louisevale Dominique has gotten a Double Gold award.
The Louisevale Chardonnay Pinot Noir was voted the best Rosé winner for 2015!
There was also various certificates in competitions that the wines have accumulated and they are proudly displayed in the entrance to Louisevale tasting room.
This was and will not be the last time that Louisevale Winery will see of me.
I will definitely be back to experience their warmth and hospitality again and maybe, next time, on a cold winters day, their fireplace!
All in all, a great weekend!
The wine, and wines we have tasted.
