The annual Bien Donne Expo 1-3 Nov 2007

The annual Bien Donne Expo was held this year from Thursday 1 November to Thursday 3 November 2007.

The Expo started over 65 years ago as a farmer’s day on the exact same premises where it is held to this day. More than 200 exhibitors from various agricultural industries were represented at the expo. The Expo focuses on modern equipment and technology. Numerous talks on research and topics relevant to the industry are held each year.

Landbou Weekblad was one of the proud sponsors of the Expo and Susan Wessels joined them on the Saturday at their stand. Susan received the 2007 Landbou Weekblad Woman Winemaker of the Year award in July, earlier this year. She showcased 4 wines- Sauvignon Blanc 2007 (for which she won the award and also recently received a Veritas Gold), Jess 2007(Dry Rose), Karien 2006(Chenin Blanc) and Simond 2004 (Shiraz/Cabernet).

Guests from Landbou Weekblad were treated by tasting her wines along with the public who visited the Expo.

The Bien Donne Expo is definitely an enjoyable experience for the entire family and to all who missed it this year- Make a note for 2008!
