Appellation SA’s fine wines will be available at Mulligatawny Farm Open Garden on 12 and 13 October 2019.

One of the highlights of the 2019 open garden season will be the re-opening of one of Gauteng’s most beautiful gardens, the garden at Mulligatawny Farm, near Skeerpoort in the Cradle of Humankind, on 12 and 13 October 2019.

Visitors to the magnificent Mulligatawny Farm garden will be thrilled to once again have the pleasure of enjoying a range of boutique wines supplied by Appellation SA.

Appellation SA is a niche distributor of boutique wines, and this year they will be offering a wider range of wines, including the hit of the 2017 open garden, Vondeling Rosé. Other wines from the Vondeling Voor-Paardeberg Wines portfolio include the Chenin and Baldrick Shiraz. New to the Mulligatawny Farm open garden are the Miss Molly Kitchen Thief Sauvignon Blanc, and the In My Bed red blend of Merlot and Cabernet.

“And, in response to feedback from our patrons last time, we’ll also be offering some bubbly this year—Miss Molly Brut MCC,” says CEO Janine Shearer. “Sitting in that beautiful spot with a glass of bubbles in your hand, what could be better?”

This year’s open garden—which features waterlilies, thousands of roses and irises, a lakeside folly, a garden cathedral, an orchid house and other highlights including sculptures, murals and a potager—is once again in aid of St George’s Turning Point Foundation which helps young people obtain vocational training.

“One of the highlights of the whole Mulligatawny experience is sitting on the banks of the lake looking across to the distant Magaliesberg—and sipping some delicious wine, so we’re really delighted that the Appellation SA team will again be playing a part in making this a special day for our visitors”, says Marianne MacRobert, chair of the St George’s Turning Point Foundation. “We’re hoping for record crowds this year to support our drive to help more young people acquire job-relevant skills.”

About St George’s Turning Point Foundation

The St George’s Turning Point Foundation (TPF) began as a home for vulnerable children. After running for more than a decade the house was sold and a foundation established to provide funding to help disadvantaged young people acquire the skills they need to obtain jobs. The focus is on vocational training to produce artisan and other skills needed by business and industry, and that are within the reach of the majority. Our belief is that without the realistic prospect of a job, our young people are condemned to a life of frustration. We are currently funding students at Sparrow FET College and St Anthony’s Education Centre in Boksburg. For more information, please visit
