DGB received this letter from Karen Petersen - Marketing and Punblic Relations for the Andrew Murray home based in Wellington.

"Dear Tim/Ernst, Hope you are well.

We would like to thank you for the invitation to the glamorous Hollywood Event at Franschhoek Cellar this morning and the handover of the cheque for the amount of R170 000.00.

We are honoured to have you as one of our partners and are looking forward to build the relationship further in 2017. A special thank you to Ernst who are always willing to assist.

Andrew Murray kids' party at The Olive Press

DGB hosted a party for the Wellington Children's Home on Friday outside the Olive Press function venue at Boschendal which featured a soft play area for the little ones, face painting, temporary tattoos, a make-up & nail art booth, some players from Boland Kavaliers and even a dog show. Well done to all involved for making this day a special one.

Op soek na Etienne Leroux se Welgevonden

Waar kom Sewe Dae by die Silbersteins en die eksotiese plaas Welgevonden vandaan?

Sewe Dae by die Silbersteins, Etienne Leroux se Sestiger-roman wat nou al kultusstatus bereik het, was nie op blote fantasie gegrond nie. Willemien Brümmer het die herehuis op Bellingham naby Franschhoek besoek en haar midde-in die onwerklikheid van ’n sprokie bevind. 

More Gold for Boschendal

Boschendal walked away with not one, but TWO Grand d’Or medals at the Michelangelo International Wine & Spirit Awards.

The Michelangelo International Wine & Spirit Awards gives local and foreign wines the opportunity of being judged by a panel of acclaimed wine experts from around the globe. All judges are hand-picked and serve on the panel by invitation only. Wines are judged in accordance with the variety or type (the class) to which it belongs. (an international 100 point system is used.)
