Drostdy Hof, one of South Africa’s most recognised wine brands, continues down the path of innovation with the launch of its stylish new wine packaging.
The brand’s slick new appearance was unveiled at a lunch, held at Quentin at Oakhurst in Hout Bay. The refreshing new look aims to give pride of place to the historic home in Tulbagh. The change comes in the wake of a new positioning that sees the brand rooted in an unspoiled, wholesome but sophisticated country environment expressed by “pure country wines” tagline.
Well known for their inviting flavours, Drostdy Hof wines come in 750ml bottles and convenient 3 liter boxes. The new design features De Oude Drostdy, a national monument designed by famous architect, Louis Michel Thibault and built in 1804.
This remarkable building has been near the brink of destruction on numerous occasions, most notably a fire and earthquake. Thankfully it has been restored and today it stands as an example of the typically South African can-do attitude of resilience and endurance. Over the years, De Oude Drostdy was home to many fascinating South African characters before becoming a museum and tasting centre.
Trusted taste and a selection of different styles make Drostdy Hof the perfect partner for any meal, whatever the mood or occasion. It goes to show that sometimes it helps to hunt outside the seriously prestigious and expensive wine ranges. At Drostdy Hof you’ll find value for money wines with refreshingly moderate alcohol levels, elegance and subtlety.
Drostdy Hof wines are available from leading stores countrywide and retail for around R30 for the bottled whites and R35 for the bottled reds, while the bag-in-box offerings are priced between R80 and R115.
