Sip Back and Relax at Tim’s Wine Market

Tim’s Wine Market celebrates all kinds of wine, especially natural and speciality wines! Located in North Orange Avenue, you could find various types of liquid delicacies. Moreover, Tim’s Wine Market has an array of events to attend. They have Friday Night Wine Down (I get the pun here!) from 4 pm-6 pm, where visitors try a selection of free sample wines!

Then there’s Swing-by Saturday Samples between 12 pm-4 pm. At this event,  you learn what you like and why you like it. “Because it’s wine!” would be my simple, yet honest observation. Lastly, there’s J.P.’s Sunday Samples where friendly J.P. himself takes you through the latest and greatest on the shelf. You can trust his taste, he’s a professional! Make sure to pop in between 12 pm-4 pm to partake in this event. No reservations are necessary, just go s-wine by.

Certified Biodynamic

According to the Biodynamic Farming and Gardening Association, biodynamic farming is “a spiritual-ethical-ecological approach to agriculture, gardens, food production, and nutrition”. Basically, the idea is to create a self-sustaining system that works as one organism.

Chemical fertilizers and pesticides are forbidden. It is up to livestock to fertilize the soil. The only thing with biodynamic wine is that it is harder to prove its status as a biodynamic wine, despite its very scientific name.

Certified Organic

Also produced without chemical fertilizers and pesticides, organic wine is hard to distinguish from its biodynamic and natural counterparts. No additional sulfites can be added to the wine. Also, the yeast that’s added to the process must be certified organic.

It differs from biodynamic farming since it doesn’t follow the vineyard’s ‘biodynamic calendar’. Organic farming works with the wine once the organic grapes are harvested. While biodynamic farming is a process, organic wine is more like a production.

Certified ‘Natural’

Wines from Tim's Wine Market

Let’s get to the good stuff, ‘natural’ wine. This means low alcohol and virtually no sugar. While it may be hard to spot the difference between biodynamic wine and natural wine, let me break it down for you. This is the most historic way of making wine, without pesticides and chemicals. Without any intervention, really. Less than 1% of the world’s wines are grown to this standard. The organic or biodynamic grapes are grown and hand-picked as opposed to it being harvested with machinery.

There’s absolutely no irrigation, unlike biodynamic farming which allows irrigation that’s in line with the ‘calendar’. If it doesn’t rain, then the vineyard is left to grow roots deeper into the ground in search of water. Consumers of natural wine claim that they don’t get hangovers, and that it tastes fuller, richer and more authentic. In other words, it’s incredibly delicious. The lack of irrigation is also better for the planet. Dry Farm Wine’s farmers have calculated that no irrigation farming has led to saving 5 000 000 000 litres of water annually. That’s a lot!

Hi there! I’m Megan, an absolute lover of words, literature, books, stories, anything that has to do with writing, reading, imagining. Because of my passion, I decided to make writing my life, and with that, I decided to study BA Languages at the University of Pretoria and am happy to report that I made my dream come true by graduating and becoming a travel writer. During my final year I wrote for my campus newspaper, the PDBY, where I learned to trust my writing voice. Now, as I sit here writing my petit little bio, I feel more in love with writing than I’ve ever been. Turns out, like much of my personality, my writing can equally showcase both the calm and put-together, as well as the crazy.
