Even though apartheid ended decades ago, the effects are still felt through the local communities. As part of his commitment to his employees and the community, Alex Dale (of Radford Dale wines) created a trust called The Land of Hope, which provides scholarships to the children and dependents of his employees. Alex states, “From the start, we decided to focus on education. Why? Because you can’t build a new society without giving its young people the intellectual capacity to take themselves – let alone their community – to the next level. We think that giving a first-rate education to every child or dependent of our Previously Disadvantaged Individual employees is the ideal way to reward our team members for their loyalty, beyond-the-call-of-duty work ethic, and dedication over the past two decades”. 

Chenin Blanc is the most widely planted grape in South Africa, yet when apartheid ended, little respect was shown to this truly delicious varietal because it had really only been used to distill cheap brandy and jug wine. 

Instead of focusing solely on grapes labeled “premium” by the wine industry (think Sauvignon Blanc and Merlot, etc), Alex Dale decided to create a wine that elevated the humble and mistreated Chenin Blanc. Handpicked and aged in Burgundian French oak barrels, Land of Hope Chenin Blanc is just rich enough to satisfy the most discerning palate and just acidic enough to be refreshing; the perfect balance. 

With ripe stone fruits and tropical fruits on the nose, a nutty richness on the palate, and a balancing fresh acidity, we recommend enjoying with roasted white meats and Asian-spiced dishes (particularly fish).

Alex rapidly fell in love with the country and quickly vowed to adopt it as his homeland. The moment apartheid fell and Nelson Mandela was elected, Alex packed up and moved to the country from England and began making some of the country’s finest wines - the rest is history,
