Natte Valleij and its grand old cape Dutch buildings have been home to quite a few interesting people and produced its fair share of fine Cape Wines. One of these was an Italian prisoner of war (P.O.W.) Captured and exiled to the Cape to spend the duration of the Second World War on the grounds of Natte Valleij. Doubtless he helped with farming and quite possibly winemaking, whilst living the cottage my wife and I call home. The inscription P.O.W. B.T. 27/12/1943 is our only reminder of his stay. In his honour, we have hand-crafted this limited release wine. Our take on an SA Bordeaux blend. Traditionally vinified; a blend of the finest grapes of the vintage and matured for 36months in large oak barrels.
