”I am your father” (brandishing a sabrage sword)

Say a special thank you to the fathers in your life on Sunday the 19th of June with one of the gift sets we have put together below. There are two Coravin wine preservation system gift sets which come with a bottle of red wine (the first ten orders will receive the set packaged in a complimentary wooden Coravin gift box), and then we have a very limited number of sabrage sabre sets which come with a bottle of Champagne Vilmart et Cie. 

Dear Reader,

On Sunday the 19th of June it is Father’s Day and we wanted to provide some special gift ideas ahead of time and save you any potential last-minute rushing around. We have three options which we have put together. Choose the one you like best for the lucky dad and we will take care of the rest.

Coravin Model 3+ Timeless with bottle of Collines de L'If 2018
R 4,295 per gift set (valued at R 5,890)

The Thienpont family of Château Le Pin in Pomerol owns another estate in Saint-Émilion called Château L’If. Plantings are dominated by Merlot at 70% with 25% Cabernet-Franc and 5% Cabernet-Sauvignon. The second wine, Les Collines de L’If, gets its name from the rolling slopes where the grapes are grown. Made from a blend of 91% Merlot and 9% Cabernet Franc, the Collines vineyard comprises three hectares of the estate.

Coravin Pivot with bottle of Keermont 2015 Amphitheatre
R 2,480 per gift set (valued at R 2,875)

In 2015, Keermont Vineyards decided that the quality of the vintage demanded that its Estate Reserve required more attention. As such, there was meticulous attention paid to every last detail of this Stellenbosch red blend and to release it, when ready, as Keermont’s true flagship wine. This blend is called the Keermont “Amphitheatre” and the 2015 vintage is the maiden release. The bend is made up of 32% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Cabernet Franc, 22% Merlot, 17% Petit Verdot, 5% Malbec and 1% Syrah.

Sabrage sword with bottle of Champagne Vilmart Grand Cellier NV
R 3,350 per gift set (very limited availability)
