THE ROUTES:

Spioenkop

Over 100 years ago, on the evening of Tuesday 23 January 1900, 1 700 British troops deployed to South Africa prepared to attack their enemies on a hill in Natal known as Spionkop – the name ‘Spioenkop’, meaning ‘Spy Hill’ or 'Lookout Hill', was coined by the Dutch settlers for the commanding views it afforded of the slopes and valley below. During the days that followed, a bloody battle ensued – essentially between the might of the British Empire and a ragged group of Boer farmers – and eventually it was the British who were defeated.

Corder

Corder Family Wines in the cool Elgin Valley are known for their elegance, zesty character, fruit structure and flavour. This is the result of our unique terroir, meticulous viticulture and modern winemaking techniques. Right from first bud burst, we nurture our foliage so that our vines flourish in a stress free environment to ensure minimal yield and maximum quality. What's more, given that the best grapes make the best wines, we ensure that only perfect grapes are delivered to the cellar.
