- ’n Verhaal van liefde en innovasie Portstyl-wyn is deel van De Krans se erfenis. In ag genome die streek se klimaat en grondtipe was dit eintlik onvermydelik dat hierdie bekroonde wynmakery sou beweeg na Portugese kultivars. Dit is hoe De Krans gekom het tot waar hy vandag is, een van die mees bekroonde en gerespekteerde produsente van portstyl-wyne en droë wyne van Portugese kultivars in Suid-Afrika. Maar bowenal is De Krans se mense lief vir portstyl-wyne. Hulle is passievol daaroor, en soos alles in die lewe waaroor mens passievol is, wil mens daardie passie, daardie liefde deel. Jy wil hê ander moet dit ervaar en ook lief raak

- A story of love and innovation At De Krans Wines, port- style wines are part of our heritage. It was inevitable really, with our climate and our soil, that we would gravitate towards Portuguese grape varieties. It is how we came to be who we are today – one of the most awarded and respected port-style wine and Portuguese dry wine producers in South Africa. Above all, we love port-style wines. We are passionate about it, and like anything in life, if you are passionate about something, you want to share that passion, that love. You want others to experience it, and to fall in love, too.

Even though we may be back in office and swimming in emails instead of the cool blue waters, we can still celebrate summer in style and with some prettiness, especially with Valentine’s Day around the corner. The De Krans Pinotage Rosé is not only one of De Krans’ fastest growing wines, but also definitely one of our most delicious. The De Krans Pinotage Rosé has a beautiful light rose petal, blush pink colour with roses, candy floss and strawberries on the nose, and fine, red fruit on the palate. While packed
