June 2017

Taking our wines to the world

This view of Vinexpo Bordeaux gives an idea of the size and scale of the expo.

Sales and Marketing Manager, Bethchen Zaayman, is excited to be taking Org de Rac to Vinexpo Bordeaux in June. The city of Bordeaux is the centre of the famous French winemaking region of the same name and the exposition that takes place there every second year attracts over 2 300 exhibitors from 42 wine producing countries, and at least 48 000 visitors.

Wine has been produced in Bordeaux since the eighth century, but in 2017 the focus is very much on organic wines. For the first time ever, Vinexpo Bordeaux is offering an exhibition area entirely dedicated to organic and biodynamic wines, demonstrating the growing, worldwide demand for more natural, healthier wines (just like those produced by Org de Rac!). The exhibition area is called “World of Organic Wines”, or “WOW!”.

Vinexpo Bordeaux 2017 takes place from 18 to 21 June. Org de Rac will exhibit at the stand of South African wine exporters and marketers, Robinson & Sinclair: stand #D266 located in Hall 1.


Winging across African skies


Org de Rac is proud to be the wine supplier of choice to RwandAir, an airline that offers domestic and international flights to a wide range of destinations in Africa and the Middle East from its base in the Rwandan capital city of Kigali.

On every flight, passengers are able to select between Org de Rac Chardonnay, a fruity, beautifully balanced white wine, and a silky red blend of cabernet sauvignon, merlot and shiraz.

The Org de Rac wines are presented in RwandAir-branded 187ml bottles.

The best choice for Father's Day

Org de Rac’s Tim Reddell is looking forward to sharing Father’s Day on Sunday June 18 with his grandchildren Kai, 6 (left), and Jack, 3. The two boys keep Tim on his toes, but when it’s time to relax, he enjoys a glass of Org de Rac Merlot Reserve 2014.

Tim says the wine is ideal for cold winter’s nights, and after reading the winemaker’s description of the Org de Rac Merlot Reserve, you might be inclined to agree: “Org de Rac Merlot Reserve is a full bodied red wine with a bouquet of berry, plum, cigar-box, a whiff of mint and a touch of dark chocolate”. Doesn’t that sound like a winter survival kit?

Picture of the month

It’s difficult not to notice Org de Rac organic wine estate as you cross the Berg River and drive towards Piketberg on the N7. The sight of the vineyards on the hillside is our promise to you of a hearty welcome. But, just in case you need an extra reminder, we recently erected new signage alongside the road. We look forward to your visit!.
