Fantail Trail Run @ Morgenhof Wine Estate – 24 November 2019

Join Dirtopia for the last Sportsmans Warehouse event for 2019 at the beautiful Morgenhof Wine Estate.

Historically a wine estate since 1692, you can trace the rich winemaking history of the estate back to the original French Huguenots. The Simonsberg conservancy favours red cultivars and the well-known Fantail Wines of this historic Estate. The best way to describe Fantail wines would be the French, vin de soif and vin des copains. Translated as satisfying wines to be enjoyed with friends. The peacocks can be seen roaming the estate and their majestic tail plumage emulates the extravagance of flavour found in a bottle of Fantail.
