Leopards Leap in the Limelight!

Recently, Leopards Leap wines hosted the food editor of Huisgenoot, Carmen Niehaus, and her crew at the picturesque Bakkrans in the Cederberg.

Carmen and her team were whisked away in our 4×4’s and were totally blown away by the beauty of the Cederberg! Our winemaker, Eugene van Zyl was a fabulous host and a great model too! His oxtail “potjie” was a winner, with not as much as a grain of rice to speak of, after everyone went for multiple helpings! The Leopards Leap cocktails were real thirst quenchers and totally awesome to drink in the bushveld! Carmen Niehaus and her team were a great bunch and were really inspired by Quinton Martins and the Cape Leopard Trust.

Watch out for the valentine’s edition of YOU/HUISGENOOT/DRUM to see Eugene’s modelling debut as well as his famous oxtail potjie…
