( “Bubbles, anyone?” )
If the Barrelman could drink sparkling wine for breakfast, he would. This craving was the genesis of Sparkling Steen and Sparkling Herminoir. Steen is the name of Chenin Blanc in South Africa, also meaning “rock”, we think this wine is “sparkling rocks from Africa we all can afford”. Sip slowly.
Herminoir, the “almost name” of Pinotage, tastes great with bubbles added. Crafted to celebrate our love for things South African, its wine and the good people who grow it. Authentic, indigenous bubbles on a budget is a good thing.

WINEMAKER’S COMMENT: “If I could drink sparkling wine for breakfast, I would. And this craving was this wine’s inspiration. Like butter on your toast or cream cheese on your bagel, 7% Hanepoot (also known as Muscat) adds just the right “something special” to bright, fresh mineral-driven Chenin Blanc, or Steen as we call it down here in South Africa. I often tell my friends, “Here are some sparkling rocks from Africa that everyone can afford to enjoy!” Sip slowly.

WINEMAKER’S COMMENT: My name is Robert, but my friends call me Bob. I was a surprise – a lovechild! In 1925 Professor Abraham Perold created this vinferous lovechild. A celebration of new life, he called his baby Pinotage. Like me – often misunderstood but surprisingly unique. Celebrate your uniqueness with Sparkling Herminoir – aka Sparkling Pinotage.
