In 1699 Phillip De Royan was the first owner of a piece of untamed land, today known as Lelienfontein, the home of Bosman Family Vineyards.
With the 2016 harvest officially behind us we can now look forward to the soulful simplicity that only winter can bring. In this newsletter, we are proud to share with you stories from the farm and family, a wonderful winter wine selection that will save you R345, something special for Father's Day and a Riedel promotion that is impossible to resist.

Hot off the press!
A celebration of second chances.

In 2007, this single vineyard bush vine was about to be uprooted. Thanks to vision from Corlea Fourie and Petrus Bosman, we now have the opportunity to taste wine made from this special vineyard planted in 1952.

Today, we celebrate the fact that Optenhorst Chenin Blanc 2011 is one of only 21 Trophy winners and top scoring wine in the Museum Class (any white wine older than 4 years) Chenin Blanc at the 2016 Old Mutual Trophy Wine Show. Not bad for the beautiful old lady of the Bovlei valley of Wellington!

The results of the Old Mutual Trophy Wine Show were announced on 31 May 2016. Thirty-seven gold, 113 silver and 509 bronze medal winners with 21 trophy-winning wines were selected as the top scorers of their categories in the final round. Public tastings where you can experience the wines that made the cut as silver and gold medallists will be held here:

Our team recently did a tutored Riedel tasting through our range of wines matched with the appropriate Riedel stemware. As the world renowned Robert Parker of the Wine Advocate said: “The effect of these glasses on fine wine is profound, I cannot emphasize enough what a difference they make”.

Based on the amazing tasting sensation of these glasses we now offer our wine tastings paired with the appropriate Riedel glasses.

A Fairtrade story told by Christopher Kammies

Having our wines accredited by Fairtrade has benefited numerous social and environmental initiatives on our farms. This story highlights the activities of the Bosman Adama farm choir and is told from the perspective of Christopher Kammies, one of the members of the choir and an employee of Bosman Adama.

I hope that you enjoy reading about the developments on our farm as much as you enjoy drinking our wines!

Kind regards,
Carla Bosman
