Swartland Winery pull out all the stops
Malmesbury Food and Wine Festival, 4 to 5 June 2004 'Swartland Winery will certainly pull out all the stops to make this year’s Malmesbury Food and Wine Festival a worthwhile event for everybody,' says Hetta Saunderson, marketing coordinator of Swartland Winery. 'Swartland Winery will also launch its new range of wines – Eagle Crest – at the festival. We position this quality range between our Indalo premium range and the traditional Swartland range. We will also market the Eagle Crest range overseas. 'The Eagle Crest range has been carefully selected by our winemakers and viticulturist, and has been kept in barrels for six months. The range is aimed at people who understand and appreciate wine.' The name Eagle Crest has been taken from Malmesbury’s crest. Swartland Winery’s logo contains elements from this crest which originated from Malmesbury’s sister city of the same name in England. Swartland Winery’s Eagle Crest range will consist of a Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon/Shiraz, Chenin Blanc/Chardonnay and a Chenin Blanc. 'We invite everyone at the festival to come and visit our stands and taste our wines,' says Hetta. 'You will also be able to taste and purchase many of Swartland’s 2004 white wines at the festival – among others the Sauvignon Blanc, Chenin Blanc and Chardonnay.' The wine experts at Swartland Winery will demonstrate their know-how in the annual blind wine-tasting competition to be held on the Saturday. The Cellar will also defend its title in the fashion show where participants showcase clothes centred around a wine theme.
