Jolette Steyn is a super international wine sales lady by day, planning Vineyard Parties on the side. She has 15 harvests under her belt and quit her winemaking day job to take a gamble on making the kinds of wine she, as a self-proclaimed wine geek, truly loves. The Vineyard Party aims to bring some of South Africa’s lesser-known varietals to the forefront by exploring the Cape’s vineyards in search of biodiverse, sustainably farmed vineyards with happy soils, people and vines. This is the maiden release and quantities are super limited!
The two wines, I’m Your Huckleberry (or Huck, as we like to call it) and Here be Dragons are harvested from the same vineyard on the same day. Split into 3 batches and fermented in different, avant-garde and low intervention ways. Each one includes 2 different components of the 3 techniques.
Style: Quirky & fun
Ingredients: Grapes + WAY less SO2 than in store-bought orange juice (and yes, Jolette has tested this)
