Neethlingshof Wine: The Caracal, The Owl Post and Maria
Neethlingshof wine impresses with its taste, but also the history that is linked to it. The Caracal is the vineyard's flagship and celebrates the return of the lynx into the recovering nature that surrounds Neethlingshof. The Owl Post Pinotage refers to the sustainable wine cultivation of the winemakers who use owls on their yard for pest control instead of pesticides. Maria Magdalena Marais took over Neethlingshof as a widow at the end of the 18th century and helped the yard to become one of the best wineries in South Africa with her energy and strength.
