WINE MATTERS - December 2015

"With the Festive Season around the corner, I would like to convey the Overhex team’s warmest greetings and best wishes for 2016. We remain committed to bringing you quality wines, innovative brand solutions and professional service for many years to come!"  – GERHARD VAN DER WATH

VINTAGE 2016. WHAT ARE THE PROSPECTS?
To find out what’s happening in the vineyards, we had a chat with our vineyard consultant, Dirk Bosman. “The cold winter contributed positively to even budding while the relatively warm weather (with a heatwave in mid-October) promoted good vine growth. Although the lower than normal rainfall may impact on the size of the harvest, we remain optimistic about the quality of especially the red grapes.”
MORE ACCOLADES FOR SURVIVOR
Our exciting Survivor range continues to go from strength to strength with its award-winning quality and irresistible label making the bottles jump off the shelf! Just a few weeks after launch, the 2014 Survivor Pinotage won a coveted Absa Top 10 Pinotage trophy. This was followed by an impressive 4½ star Platter rating for the 2015 Survivor Chenin Blanc plus 4 star Platter ratings for the 2015 Survivor Sauvignon Blanc, the 2014 Survivor Pinotage and the 2014 Survivor Merlot Cabernet Sauvignon.  The 2015 Survivor Sauvignon Blanc was furthermore among the 2015 FNB Top Ten winners.


 
In the meantime we’re running a thrilling Survivor promotion on Facebook: ‘JOIN THE MOOOO-VEMENT’. Participants are required to like, share and tag a friend to stand the chance of winning gift packs of Survivor wine. The promotion runs until the end of December 2015 and the brand furthermore contributes R5 for every like to za.movember.com.
A FOND FAREWELL TO LIEZL
We are sad indeed to have to say goodbye to Liezl de Jong, a stalwart member of our team over the past decade. Liezl joined OWI in 2005 and has since made her mark as a dynamic, knowledgeable and successful marketing and sales manager.
“Over the past ten years (time really flies when you’re having fun!) I have learnt a lot and gained valuable experience, which I will always treasure and for which I thank you all,” says Liezl. “It has been a wonderful learning curve and a most rewarding time in my career and I will miss you, but the time has come to move on!” 
And moving on she certainly is – in fact to Vietnam where the intrepid Liezl will be teaching English. We wish her good luck and everything of the very best on her new adventure. Thank you for your great contribution to the OWI team, Liezl. You will be missed by colleagues, clients and suppliers alike!

FORTHCOMING BISTRO ATTRACTION …
If you live in the Worcester area, don’t miss out on the performance of Joshua na die Reën (JNDR) on 30 January 2016 at the Overhex Bistro.  “Their own unique style of stadium rock infused with classical piano and string instruments along with the crystal clear vocals from front man Jacques de Villiers, has enabled JNDR to perfect a sound that no other South African band has come close to.”
FESTIVE SEASON BUSINESS HOURS
Please note that the Bistro will be closed from 20 December 2015 to 6 January 2016 while the OWI office will be closed from 23 December 2015 to 4 January 2016.
