Why? We thought you'd never ask:
1. Drinking three glasses of champagne every week is said to help prevent the onset of dementia.
2. MCC is rich in polyphenols, which are antioxidants that can lower blood pressure and help your heart. Dosage: two glasses a day.
3. Studies have shown that people who drink wine live longer than people who drink beer or spirits.
Make a sparkling rosé Negroni and you’ll make your friends smile, and smile, and smile.

We asked our winemaker Clayton Reabow for his pick of spring wines
"Recently rated 90 points in Decanter, this wine is a fresh take on the traditional Chardonnay/Pinot Noir blend."
Môreson Dr Reason Why Chardonnay 2015
"An unwooded Chardonnay fresh enough to rival any Sauvignon blanc with sufficient depth, body and mouthfeel to be mistaken for a wooded wine."
Môreson Mercator 2014
"Rated 91 points in South African Chardonnay report. New release Mercator 2014 has matured for 1 year in bottle and now delivering Môreson's hallmark character of pineapple, pear, lemon and lime. A perfect spring wine."
"Four be the things I am wiser to know:
Idleness, sorrow, a friend, and a foe.
Four be the things I'd been better without:
Love, curiosity, freckles, and doubt.
Three be the things I shall never attain:
Envy, content, and sufficient champagne.
Three be the things I shall have till I die:
Laughter and hope and a sock in the eye.”

Get out of hand at the inaugural Franschhoek Craft Festival this summer. This one-of-a-kind festival takes place at Môreson—a blissful wine farm—on 5 November 2016 between 11am and 5pm.
Experience the magic first-hand of a selection of specially curated, handcrafted food and drink as well as specialised and limited edition pieces, including art, jewelry and luxury leather goods.
You’ll be in good hands with plenty of local wines, Cap Classique, craft brews and small batch spirits. Môreson’s farm restaurant, Bread & Wine will be on-hand with their famed, artisan charcuterie and breads, with many other craft and fine food producers taking matters into their own hands offering cheeses, pastries, chocolates and so much more.
You’ll be happy to give a hand to the live musical entertainment; and bring the whole family, there’s something for everyone to get their hands on.
GM of Môreson, Nikki Friedman says: “This will be hands-down the best showcase of all South Africa’s local craft-producers. I’m excited not because people are making craft goods, but that there are doing them so fabulously. Come see for yourself.”
Tickets, which include entry and tastings of the wines on show, cost R180 per person and can be booked directly via www.webtickets.co.za.
Family owned and run Wine Farm, Môreson is home to Miss Molly Wine and Bubbly and Môreson Wines and MCC.
Thanks rain. Not only is our farm soaking up all the wonderful rain, but our secret new river spot is now well, a river spot!
For this year's Franschhoek Bastille Festival we built a bespoke Miss Molly Bar - and we lit her up in French colours!
Thank you everyone who came out and enjoyed the festival with us. We'll see you again next year!
