Vines Special Release
The Vines is PEI Liquor’s fine wines program. The Vines offers allocated, hard-to-find products for explorers and collectors with a passion for world-class wines.
PEI Liquor offers 200 Vines products on a continuous basis but, occasionally, we also source outstanding products as one-time purchases to broaden the portfolio and put forward new and exciting finds for discerning wine lovers.
The current Vines Special Release features vibrant South African wines from Iconic Rustenberg Winery.
About The Rustenberg Estate
The Rustenberg Estate was founded in 1682 and is nestled in the valley of the Simonsberg Mountain in South Africa’s premium wine region, Stellenbosch. Vineyards producing the grapes for Rustenberg’s wines climb the rich red slopes of the Simonsberg Mountain. A range of slopes and aspects allows site specific plantings that enhance varietal characteristics. All grapes are hand-harvested in the early mornings and all vineyard blocks vinified separately, then blended for added complexity.
About South Africa
South Africa is ranked the world’s eighth largest producer. South Africa boasts some of the oldest viticultural soils in the world, traceable back some 1000 million years ago. The constant interplay between these ancient soils, soaring mountains, valley slopes and coastal breezes results in a natural environment exceptional in its biodiversity. Diversity of soils is matched by diversity of climate and geography, creating a treasure trove of winemaking possibilities.
