In one of the world’s most desired winemaking locations, South Africa’s Cape Wineland’s district, Wellington, lies the intimate and picturesque wine estate, Jacaranda. The Cape Dutch style Manor House and Cottages were built close to a century ago and the first Chenin Blanc vineyard planted in the 1970’s.
Owners René Reiser and Birgit Schmiederer-Reiser replanted part of the vines to Chenin Blanc, Shiraz and Viognier in 2011. The area under vine is 2.5 hectares which allows the winemaker to lovingly tend to the vines and ensure Jacaranda wines are handcrafted. A new cellar was constructed in 2012 and the first estate wines will be released in 2014 as they are currently maturing in the cellar’s barrels.
Wine Discoveries Pty Ltd is located at Jacaranda and Wine Discoveries Vinothek and Wine shop in Shanghai/China are the two spaces for trading and business activities. After working with a team of wine merchants in China, the owner’s journey has brought them to Jacaranda Wine Estate and selling superb drinking wines.
