A huge thank you for your support in buying our Fairtrade wines across the globe. The good news is that we have recently started our second Adama housing project, following on the first Adama Retirement Home’s success. The second Adama housing project is underway and will consist of eight units, giving quality housing to 18 residents. We will keep you posted on progress, but this is a very exciting development indeed.


Junior winemaker, Natasha Williams is waving the South African flag in Russian River Valley USA, where she is doing a harvest with acclaimed winemaker Merry Edwards of Merry Edwards Winery. On a recent vine nursery visit to the USA, Jannie Snr and Jannie Jr paid her a visit, and enjoyed a pizza and a beer together in Bakersfield. Good luck, Natasha, and may this be a fantastic experience for you as winemaker.
