Diemersfontein Wine Estate

Diemersfontein Wine Estate

Long famous for its revolutionary 'coffee-chocolate' Pinotage, Diemersfontein wine estate outside Wellington is proving it's no one-trick-pony when it comes to this iconic South African cultivar, with the release of a third Pinotage in the range, 'The Prodigy'.

While the complex Carpe Diem Pinotage Reserve is a bottle best kept for special occasions, and the much-loved coffee and chocolate notes of the Original Pinotage make it a wine worth savouring, the lighter fruit-driven style of The Prodigy perfectly ticks the box for everyday enjoyment.

The Prodigy also fits neatly into a reframing of the estate's trio of Pinotage releases, now re-imagined as three talented performers, each with their own charms. There's elegance in the Carpe Diem Pinotage Reserve, and The Original Diemersfontein Pinotage is touted as the ground-breaking rebel for her genre-busting charisma. So, it's entirely fitting that this latest addition is dubbed The Prodigy.

The musical reference of Diemersfontein's Pinotage releases also ties in with the charitable works of the estate's Excellence Out of Africa Trust. Founded in 2010 with a focus on classical music and opera, the Trust has provided financial and logistical support to launch the careers of a number of gifted young artists, who are making stellar international careers. Diemersfontein has also supported the careers of a number of popular music groups through appearances at the enormously popular Pinotage on Tap festival held on the estate each year. Over the years the Trust has also hosted musical masterclass programs on the estate for young opera singers, and further supports youth education via scholarships to Wellington Preparatory School and College, a respected private school situated on the property, that was founded by David and Sue Sonnenberg, along with local parents.
