Business as usual for Boschendal Wines
In light of recently published reports of an imminent change of ownership of Boschendal Ltd, DGB (Pty) Ltd wish to assure that this speculation is around the property company which in no way affects the wine brand & assets.
“Any property deals that may or may not happen, will have nothing to do with Boschendal’s wine business under DGB ownership,” says Tim Hutchinson, DGB’s Chief Executive. “We remain independent and autonomous.”
DGB (Pty) Ltd have been the owners of the Boschendal wine brand, the red and white wine cellars with a capacity of 3 000 tonnes and the bottling facilities on the estate since August 2005. Since then DGB successfully doubled export volumes after only 2 years to 100 000 cases and have built the wine brand to be the best selling Premium SA wine in the UK over £7.
Douglas Green Chenin Blanc continues its Glory Trail
The International Wine Challenge (IWC) has released the results of the 2011 Great Value Wine Awards Douglas Green is a winner!
The IWS Thierry Cabanne Great Value Wine Awards for 2011 is considered one of the world’s most prestigious and influential independent wine competitions and we are proud and delighted that Douglas Green Vineyard Creations Chenin Blanc 2010 has brought home the coveted best value award for a wine under £7.
Douglas Green Vineyard Creations Chenin blanc is a no-nonsense unwooded wine with all the deliciously generous passion fruit, ripe melon, yellow apple and honeysuckle that you might expect of a South African Chenin blanc.
“Hot on the heels of a cracking 2009 vintage, our Chenin blanc showed signs of greatness straight from the vineyards in 2010, packed with purity of fruit, character and charm. I don’t think many winemakers ever experience 2 consecutive vintages that are particularly standout in their careers.” Says Jaco.
Douglas Green is available in liquor retail outlets, supermarkets and fine wine stores at a mere R30. Now that’s great value!
