This coming Father’s Day, Sunday 21st June, Groote Post is paying special tribute to their very own ‘Old Man’, Peter Pentz, by showcasing The Old Man’s Blend range of wines, released in his honour, with “Happy Father’s Day” neck-tags.
The Old Man’s Blend range came into being in 2001 at the behest of ‘The Old Man’, Peter Pentz, who asked the family to blend him a red wine to enjoy as his winter evening tipple. The enormous popularity of The Old Man’s Blend Red established a Groote Post tradition, with The Old Man’s Blend White subsequently added to the range.
Peter Pentz, The Old Man At Groote Post:
In addition to producing award-winning wines at Groote Post since 1999, Peter was one of South Africa’s top dairy pioneers, with more than 40 years’ farming experience and a number of prestigious local and international awards to his name, a forerunner and award-winner in ecologically sensitive farming and environmental conservation, and he is a highly respected property developer. Peter is also a father of three and a proud grandfather to seven grandchildren.
