Our farm has one of our oldest Afrikaans schools on it where the Afrikaans language originated. The then principal who was the first editor of the first Afrikaans magazine "Die Afrikaanse Patriot" resided on our farm. As an acknowledgement to his contribution to the language and a proud Afrikaans speaking family, we named this very special Bordeaux style blend Patriot. It won the South African Bordeaux Trophy first time round in 2013. It is only produced in limited quantities at present and we will increase the production in time to come.
