The boutique winery of Blueberry Hill can be found on the slopes of Middagkrans Peak, in the village of Franschhoek. The grapes grown thrive in the clay soils perfect for Merlot and are hand sorted to ensure the ideal ripeness and fine wines with blackcurrant, chocolate and cherry flavours.
The wine is managed consulting winemakers, Chris Albrecht and Ossie Sauermann who each have won prestigious awards in the winemaking industry. Blueberry Hill’s wines are matured for 24 months in French Oak barrels and add their own bit of flair to the ‘Food and Wine capital of South Africa, a name given to Franschhoek. As well as tasting their Blueberry Hill wines, they will organize wine tasting tours for you including ones on horseback.
