"It might come as a surprise to you, but there are actually a lot of South African wines out there named after a person." wrote Anel Grobler of drinksfeed.com
Our Miss Molly made the cut. See excerpt below, and go here for the rest of the article.
Anyone who spends any time on Môreson will know that the family is passionate about four things: wine, food, people and animals.This elegant bubbly deserves a “Miss” before the Molly. The wine is named after the family’s beloved Weimaraner. The fact that Molly has been known to flirt with a Guide-Dog or two (on more than one occasion), the Môreson team decided that a portion of every bottle of Miss Molly sold would be donated to the South African Guide-Dogs Association for the Blind and Animals in Distress.
Getting hitched soon? Come and join us for an MCC tasting before your big day, we have a few delicious bubblies to choose from. Bring your bridesmaids, groomsmen, weddingpersons - whomever you like.
We've brought some Môreson whimsy into our de-gorging and bottling stations.
Don't you think it's, ahem, de-gorgeous?
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.

"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.”
Every year our fair valley plays host to the country’s most important and well-attended literary festival. Dozens of local and international authors take part in informal discussions, debates, one-on-one conversations, and talks.
Now in-between one of these many intellectual romps (and there are many, see the programme here), your brain may need some rejuvenation—in the form of what Franschhoek does best, our Cap Classique.
A study done in 2013 revealed the best news for wine lovers. Moderate consumption of champagne aka Methode Cap Classique has the potential to influence cognitive functioning, such as memory.
The researchers found that phenolic compounds in the bubbly stuff support proteins linked to storing memories and ultimately improve your spatial memory.
And if you add this to the idea that negative ions are said to increase our levels of serotonin too (aiding energy levels as well as helping with depression and stress).
So how do these wonder molecules link up with MCC? These invisible compounds are found in environments where there are pressurised, moving liquids, such as at the ocean and at waterfalls - and when popping a bottle of Môreson Solitaire.
Take a break and enjoy a tasting with us on the farm; or come and pick up a case and enjoy it wherever you like!
