The union between Pinot Noir and Hermitage was officiated by the esteemed Professor Perold. The unlikely coupling between a noble French prince and a humble local resulted in the offspring that we have today come to know as Pinotage. The second of October celebrates Pinotage’s journey and the milestones still to come. From ancient soils and the cellars of masters, to the hands of friends and family, Pinotage is proudly South African. A blend of culture and care. And it all started with a marriage. Let’s celebrate Pinotage Month.
