Come on 1 June!!
Great news yesterday evening that South Africa is moving from level 4 to level 3 of lockdown as of Monday the 1st of June.
This means we can start to sell and deliver wine again.
Now is your chance to get your orders in for delivery from next week.

This also happens to coincide with the release of some new vintages and a new wine in our Chapters range.
This range of limited-release wines tells our story as it unfolds.
This is where I can express unique vineyard sites and produce small batches of exceptional wines from exceptional vineyards. These are single parcels which are wine styles and varieties which I love to drink, lovingly handcrafted in my pursuit of outstanding South African wines.

These new vintages are being made available exclusively to you, as part of The Miles Mossop Wines Family.

As part of the new vintages being released we have Chapter Two, a Swartland Chenin blanc and Chapter Three, a Stellenbosch Chenin blanc. Both from the 2019 vintage which proved to be an exceptional white wine vintage with the cool spring and growing season, extending into the harvest.
In addition, we have a new wine in the range being released, Chapter Four, which is a barrel fermented Sauvignon blanc from old bushvines in Stellenbosch, also from the 2019 vintage.

I will be doing an online Instagram live presentation of these 3 wines on Thursday evening at 6 pm. Please tune in to learn more about them. Follow @milesmossop on Instagram.
