Great Wine Capitals

By Richard Holmes

Cradled by the Simonsberg and Jonkershoek mountains, Boschendal Farm traces its history back to 1685 and the earliest days of the Cape colony. Over 300 years later, a surge of investment and a rejuvenation of the entire estate have made Boschendal one of most sought-after destinations in the South African winelands.

It’s only 2 weeks now before I set off from Santander in northern Spain on my journey to Mendoza, Argentina.   This is my wonderful prize for winning the Great Wine Capitals guests bloggers contest.  I received my flight tickets and itinerary a few weeks ago giving me the pleasure of knowing well in advance where I was going and the opportunity to look forward to what awaits me there.  Thank you very much Catherine Leparmentier Dayot, Permanent Secretary, Great Wine Capitals Global Network for all your help with the arrangements.

At Totally Spain we admire the work of the Great Wine Capitals Network (GWC) and have entered its Guest Bloggers Program competition for the past two years. Last year was the first year and we were very proud to have our entry included but alas no joy. This year, we entered again. And we WON!
