Oldest Vine in South Africa

 


Tucked away in a Cape Town city hotel courtyard
is the oldest grape bearing vine in South Africa.  Planted around 1781 the vine still flourishes
and due to vigorous pruning each year bears enough grapes for about 20 litres
of wine.  The  Crouchen Blanc  vine   in the  Heritage
Hotel  courtyard  has recently been harvested by Kyle Zulch of
Signal Hill Vineyard  who is making the
wine to auction off for charity. Get those check -books ready !
