The Fledge & Company is what happens when two folk (Leon Coetzee and Margaux Nel) don’t quite relish the status quo; it’s simply in their nature to go against the grain, to forge a path mostly in the unknown, eschewing common place convention and taking that first defiant flight from the nest. Hand crafting “old skool” wines of integrity, unfaltering quality, defying perceptions of origin and being guided solely by the vine to showcase their passion – these are The Fledge & Co.’s reasons for being. Wines whispering of their origin; wines benefitting from careful cellaring; wines that are best decanted & accompanied in good cheer with fine fare – that’s their unwavering goal. Each wine has a story and fascinating label (many feature local artists illustrations or photos from their travels) with a quote that inspires them. With these tenets, a penchant for the unconventional, plus the pursuit of the fluid dynamic, they set about labouring away in the vineyards across the Cape of Good Hope to produce an experimental range called Jikken Barrels (Japanese for “Experimental”) – a way of enabling them to have some fun and experiment further. We don’t know anyone else prepared to drive 22,000 kilometres to harvest grapes from all corners of the Cape, do you? Taste a selection of Rare Sightings, Nest Eggs and Jikken Barrel wines with special discounts for those that order on the night. The wines will be presented by Debi van Flymen, Cape Wine Master.
