Yonder Hill Merlot 2008 was given the chequered flag by an independent wine tasting panel from top12wines.com.
Top12.wines.com was founded by Frank Dasse who puts together an amateur wine enthusiast panel who partake in tastings of wines in different categories. Merlot was the most recent tasting and Dasse feels that the results of these tastings are a better perception of what the public enjoy and purchase. “I’m happy that people go on the website to check the current results and as we have more and more tastings of the same category, then one can see the temporary overall ranking. On top of that, it is about wines we are passionate about. I find it fun to follow, a little bit like Formula One”, comments Dasse.

Today Yonder Hill visited the ACVV Bright Light Shelter Somerset West which houses 28 boys and feeds over 30 children and 8 adults daily. This is a government owned shelter and is in desperate need of food, children’s clothes, sanitary products, educational toys and, more importantly, people who want to assist in making a difference to the shelter. Yonder Hill spent their 67minutes wisely today by feeding the inhabitants of ACVV with boerewors rolls and playing games with the children. Today`s visit made us realise that there is a big need for these future young leaders of South Africa and we want to make a notable difference in these children’s lives, even if it is by making a small monthly donation in any form. Let’s make every day a Madiba Day! Stand up and do your part! As Nelson Madela said: “We must use time wisely and forever realize that the time is always ripe to do right”.
We are donating 67 bottles of Yonder Hill wines valued at R2500.00 to be raffled. All money will be donated to the Bright Light Shelter. To buy a ticket in the raffle, contact Susan / Carmen on 021 8551008. Tickets will be on sale from 19/07 - 19/08. Ticket price R5.00 each.
