Boat Bars - Free “ Sparkling Wine ” Policy
We offer free local sparkling wine included in the per person price of our Sunset Champagne Cruise and our Champagne Cruise . both these cruises are One and a half hours in duration .
South African Sparkling wines and Method cap classic wines used to be called Champagne ,however the names of the wines have now changed but the cruise name remains the same . We did consider renaming the Cruise the Sparkling Wine Cruise but somehow it did not seem to convey the same message .
The literature says a glass per person , however we budget on a bottle per couple or half a Bottle per person .This is a complimentary drink to get you into the mood .
When this stock has been used it is time for the cash bar .
The local sparkling that we currently use is the Goedverwacht Suiderkruis Vonkel which is 50% Sauvignon blanc 50 % Colambar blend . This medium bodied sparkling wine has Guava and goosberry flavours , which is typical of the varieties used for this spakling wine .The delicate fruit flavours are also very prominent on the palate.John Platter Rating :3 stars.
These are sailing boats , so we keep a fairly limited stock .
Unlike the Motor Boats listed above , they do not have a dedicated service bar with a dedicated staff member . These are working boats and the crew serve drinks between there sailing duties. They Carry
Soft drinks and Water
And no Spirits or wines or coolers
We also do not have glasses on board as the boats are fairly active and broken glass pose a danger .
