THE VINEYARD OR THE WINE MAKER?

Posted March 14, 2019

Our Grade 12 geographers visited Beau Constantia on Monday this week. The outing is linked to their research project where they have to answer the following question:

“What is more important in the making of a good bottle of wine: the physical factors of the vineyard or the skills of the wine maker?”

The girls had an intensive and informative lesson by the farm owner Pierre du Preez, they met the wine maker, and also went into the vineyards on the mountain slopes. The cherry on top of a highly educational day was delicious treats prepared by Pierre!
