Kurt Darren launches Kaptein Red Blend Wine

The South African musician Kurt Darren announced the official release of his new wine “Kaptein Red Blend” this weekend on the 1st of December at Val de Vie Estate in the Paarl-Franschhoek Valley.  A select few of Kurt Darren’s close friends, music partners as well as media guests were invited to enjoy a wine tasting at the Val de Vie Polo Club Restaurant. Pasella filmed the processions of the day that included a polo lesson and  private brunch with Kurt who revealed the concept behind his new venture and his love for the Cape winelands. The Rhone blend is a delightful combination of Mourvedre, Shiraz, Grenache, Carignan and Cinsaut – made exclusively for Kurt Darren by the Val de Vie Estate winemaker, Harold Versfeld.  A burst of red fruit, red berries, strawberries and cherries with nuances of well integrated oak makes for an easy drinking and sociable wine. According to Darren, his love for quality wine has accompanied many inspired moments that birthed the lyrics of his well-known songs. The Kaptein Red Blend is a celebration of the success of the star’s 19-year career in the South African music industry, “Wine is a bottle full of lyrics waiting for just the right melody”.
