January 2014: A Gaggle of Geese

Somewhere at the start of 2012 someone from the district brought an old black and white photograph of his mom standing on the stoep of the farm house at Strandveld Vineyards. The photograph dates back to the early 1900’s.

The lady on the stoep leans against one of the pillars and in front of her is a gaggle of tame geese.

Winemaker Conrad Vlok decided on the spot that this has to be destiny – and very soon afterwards Strandveld Vineyards had its own goose and gander again.

It’s one year after this decision has been implemented – and when you sip on a glass of wine at the tasting room, you will see the sweetest little goslings on the outstretched lawn.
