We’re often featured in articles and blog posts but it has been a while since we shared some of those on our blog. So, if you wanted to read about AA Badenhorst Family Wines from outside, unbiased sources, here are a few we have stumbled upon online recently.
Firstly – if you are in Wellington New Zealand on Tuesday next week (28t May) you should try visit Noble Rot Wine Bar. The will be sharing knowledge, great food and a very interesting selection of South African wines on the night.
We also got wind of a lovely article by Tom Cannavan’s Wine Pages, following his recent visit to the Cape winelands. The article, part two of a series, is entitled Beyond the Vegabonds and includes a little mention of our winery.
“One of the original vagabonds, Adi Badenhorst may have his own winery in Swartland, plenty of fruit from his own vineyards, and some fairly large volume wines, but in terms of spirit and ethos, this free-wheeling force of nature still has vagabond running through his veins.”
He lists a nice bunch of people – you can read the full article by clicking HERE>
And then there is this lovely post by Winevineblog who recently stayed on the farm and went through a tasting with Hanneke. I love the intro:
“You can usually hear the Kalmoesfontein winery before you can see it. Blasting out an eclectic mix of rock and pop that echoes around the Pardeberg mountains. As the “Rules” state on a white board at the entrance to the cellar, ‘Remember to change the record’ and while this refers to a stack of 12 inch LPs of varying age that lie next to a turntable, the instruction could be taken as a company motto. For Adi Badenhost, of AA Badenhorst wineries, has changed the record.”
