Sosposa is excited to host a wine tasting event tonight in the beautiful town of Stellenbosch, South Africa. The event features Bartho Eksteen, a renowned winemaker from the Hemel-en-Aarde Valley. Located just 4 km from the Atlantic Ocean near the coastal town of Hermanus in the Walker Bay Wine Region, Bartho Eksteen’s picturesque wine estate benefits from the cool climate, which is ideal for wine production. The gentle southeastern breezes from across the bay create longer, cooler ripening seasons compared to most other South African wine regions, allowing the grapes to reach their full potential without the risk of heatwaves experienced inland. As a result, the wines produced by Bartho Eksteen are known for their excellent fruit elements, elegance, and long finish. During the tasting, Sosposa presents a variety of skillfully crafted wines, each offering a unique expression of the terroir and grapes. The Eksteens pay homage to Hermanus’ famous abalone industry by featuring an abalone shell on the logo of their Flagship and Signature wine labels, with a subtle abalone shell or mother of pearl shine in the background, further establishing their brand visually. Sosposa looks forward to sharing an unforgettable evening of wine tasting and exploration in Stellenbosch with her guests, featuring the exceptional wines of Bartho Eksteen.
