Tim Atkins 93 Points Devon Valley Stellenbosch Out of this world Organically Farmed Wine Buyers Choice
We'd bet anything that the poncho was designed by a man

And you know how we know this?

Simple: it's simple. Cut a hole in a piece of fabric and call it a day simple.

The poncho is the clothing equivalent of the Japanese flag. If we were to list step-by-step instructions on how to make one yourself, there'd be no Step Two.

If you're wondering how this ties into today's deals, it doesn't. These are just the things we think about when we're tasked with writing blurbs but we're completely out of inspiration.


Botanica Wines was founded in 2009 by owner and self-taught winemaker Ginny Povall, an intrepid American who fell in love with the beautiful Cape Winelands,  purchased Protea Heights farm in Stellenbosch’s Devon Valley and relocated to the southern tip of Africa in 2008. The 21.6-hectare farm is planted with 10 hectares of indigenous flowers which bloom throughout the year and 5 hectares of organically farmed high-density vineyards. Planted between 2009 and 2010 the estate vines provide the Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot Cabernet Franc Petit Verdot and Albariño used to craft Botanica’s Arboretum Big Flower and Flowergirl ranges.
