Happy #thirstythursday from all of us here at Hogshead Wine Company! . . We want to thank all of our loyal clients and #winelovers for their attendance at our trade #winetasting yesterday! What were your favorite wines? We are still counting down our new releases so stayed tuned if you missed our show! . . We are excited to begin working with a new producer from #southafrica, Storm Point! Today's focus is a little bit about the winery and its history and practices. The mid-15th century marked the beginning of the age of exploration, and seafaring expeditions in search of riches of the East and West ignited a battle of ‘first claims.’ In 1499, four ships set sail from #portugal with Vasco de Gama leading this voyage. As the armada reached the Cape, violent storms appeared, two ships and more than half of his men were lost at this point and De Gama cried out, stated his intentions and asked permission to pass. The storms receded and a clear path of passage appeared. . . Fast forward more than 400 years later and this wild frontier continues to amaze and implore understanding. #winemakers from around the world have flocked to South Africa for its old vines, untapped potential and immense opportunity. One such person is #australian#winemaker Mick Craven of Craven Wines. Mick explored vineyards of the Western Cape searching for sites speaking to the soul of this incredible region. . . Storm Point represents the ideal that good things come to those who wait. It was 400 years in the making and the right formula of timing, people and nature helped to create wines meant for all. Wines that define the core of South African wines: Purity, texture and concentrated elegance. . . The grapes for this are 100% from the #swartland region, on predominately granitic and shale soils. The vines are predominately between 20-30 years old and are a mix of bush vines and vertically trained vines. The red blend and #cheninblanc are coming soon to a #massachusetts#wineshop near you!
