Harvest 2019 is over at Marianne Wine Estate
Harvest is over. No more disco music in the cellar (yes, the interns were fond of disco !), the winemaker has washed the purple off his hands and the juices are now sleeping in oak barrels two floors below us. Now... let time do its magic, with a little bit of human help.

First edition of Marianne Oesfees - Fête des Vendanges
We would like to thank everybody that came to join us for this joyful day. Special thanks to Valiant Swart & Koos Kombuis, to the winners and all the very dedicated players of the French petanque Tournament. Stay tuned for more live music and more petanque to be announced soon.
Marianne partner of the French Navy task force " La Jeanne "
The French task force “Jeanne d’Arc” 2019, a five-month operational deployment of a two-vessel amphibious battle group, arrived in Cape Town on the morning of 12th of April.
Marianne's wines were served on the ship for their welcoming cocktail.
The annual “Jeanne d’Arc” mission is a French Navy (Marine Nationale) joint and allied operational deployment focused on on-the-job training for Naval College (École Navale) cadet officers and international cooperation, allowing young midshipmen to get on-the-job training at sea, thus learning the complexity of missions and operational theatres.
