Robertson Winery Toasts To A New Floral Sleeve

Robertson Winery celebrated its new floral wrap to mark their 80-years with style and grace at the bespoke Beechwood Gardens in Hyde Park, Johannesburg, during their attendance at the renowned WineX annual wine festival. Housed by the Langeberg Mountains and nourished by the Breede River, the multi-award-winning winery officially ushered in the new decade by celebrating the wine in the most romantic way possible.

Honouring the valley of wine, roses and horses with limited edition packaging

Adorned in a limited edition floral transparent sleeve to toast their 80th milestone, the packaging honours the valley of wine, roses and horses that Robertson Winery comes from. Recycle-friendly, the beautifully drawn rose sleeve can decorate nine new products. The limited edition rose wrapped bottles are sure to elevate any moment you celebrate, no matter the occasion. You can enjoy these in Robertson’s alcoholic and non-alcoholic variations:

  • Light Wines | Cultivar Range
  • Sparkling Wines
  • Natural Sweet

Robertson Winery Marketing Manager Ankia Niemann says that the roses are a much-loved and admired attribute of the famed Robertson wine valley. “What sets this range apart is its remarkable diversity, offering an array of delights from sweet to dry sparkling wine as well as alcoholic and non-alcoholic. This variety allowed us to craft not just a few roses but an entire bouquet that brings life to any shelf and every occasion with floral delight.”

The brand commissioned AdamsRib Design Studio in collaboration with fine artist Riaan Marais to beautifully capture selected varieties of roses indigenous to the Robertson valley, all of which now appear on the three product lines. Among them, the Sparkling range showcases the exquisite Iceberg and Simplicity rose varieties. The Iceberg rose, celebrated as one of South Africa’s favourites with its clusters of snow white, semi-double blooms. In contrast, the Simplicity varietal charms us with its clear pink blossoms, robust petals, and a gracefully simplistic appearance.

A floral workshop to usher in the rose era

To celebrate their limited edition floral wrap, Robertson Winery hosted a gorgeous floral workshop hosted by Mabel Maposa. Famously known as the floral whisperer, she is the creator of luxury & fine art romantic floristry Mabel M Florals. Specially brought in by Robertson Winery and Jill Manson Flower Journeys, she taught us how to create a lovely hat box. We were given secateurs and gifted with a branded apron to wear, beautiful flowers, greenery and foliage to create our masterpieces.

It was a great experience that engaged all our senses through wine, art and creation. The breathtaking flower arrangements in one of the best gardens in Johannesburg was the perfect accompaniment to a warm evening spent with Robertson Winery.
