Most successful South African Merlot Consistency Coastal Region Hermanus
Dreams are weird

They're like your brain's way of saying: you know what the world really needs? Nonsensical story lines that nobody questions and flying cars.

And even though we know they're absolutely bonkers and possess zero relevance whatsoever, we waste no time telling people all about them.

Sad fact: nobody wants to hear it. There is only one dream worth talking about, and that's Martin Luther King Jr's.

Anyhoo, last night we had a dream where we featured half off tickets to see the Red Hot Chili Peppers live at the Department of Home Affairs. They weren't even performing. They just worked there. Crazy, huh?

About

Set at the entrance to the picturesque Hemel-en-Aarde Valley, Whalehaven is the third oldest wine producer in this revered coastal area. The winery is known for its collectable, hand-crafted wines including its exceptional Merlot, Cabernet Franc as well as terroir-specific, limited releases of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. This boutique winery was named after the protective bay that is the sight of whales in the cool Cape winter months and is the birthplace of wines of exceptional quality.
