The project originally started in 2009 when Naas and Jenny Ferreira made a bubbly from a small vineyard planted at Klein Optenhorst, their beautiful home in Wellington. The wine was then named after the property.
After 29 years, they decided to sell the farm and move to Montagu and their youngest daughter Jane Ferreira-Eedes resolved to continue producing the wine as it holds many memories of special occasions at the family home. The name now changed to Dainty Bess, one of Jenny’s favourite rose types.
A visit to the Ferreira family home makes it clear that Jenny has a deep love and understanding for gardening. So we happen to think this is a very suitable new name for an elegant and fragrant pink bubbly.
Jane’s description on the wine
“Attractive salmon pink in colour. Raspberry fruit, light yeasty aromas and a hint of spice on the nose. The palate is very elegant with a fine mousse and fresh acidity.”
