A White Christmas at Vrede en Lust

“I’m dreaming of a white Christmas
Just like the ones I used to know
Where the tree tops glisten
And children listen
To hear sleigh bells in the snow”

It only comes once a year – and for various reasons it’s the best time of the year to celebrate as family and friends come together from near and far to spend time together.  Everyone has some form of nostalgic Christmas memory – and even though we’re used to sunshine and beach weather for our Christmas season – we all tend to celebrate in White Christmas Style.

This is the chosen theme to lift us into Christmas Spirit – as our selection of White wines at Vrede en Lust will be the perfect match for summer day celebrations.

Not only are they great stocking fillers, but also the best companions to serve with your favourite Christmas dish.  Throughout the next few weeks we will be bringing you specially paired recipes with our white wines – to entice you and get your creative juices flowing as to what you could be serving your guests through this festive season.

We acquired our cooler climate property, Casey’s Ridge in Elgin in 2005, and since 2010 we’ve been expanding our white wine range with all the various varietals that we have planted there.

We now have a selection of 11 white wines to suit every palate and pocket, ranging from our firm favourites, Viognier, Sauvignon Blanc, Chenin Blanc and five-varietal White Mischief to our 3 brand new additions this year; Something Sweet, Riesling and Semillon.
