Tall Horse is a winery in the Western Cape, at the tip of South Africa, named for the nickname given to giraffes when they were first discovered by westerners when brought to Paris from Africa in the 1820s. Much like these majestic creatures, the wines have made the journey from South Africa to far off lands. The giraffe is symbolic of their environment, eccentric location and their way of drawing curiosity and wonder. The idea is these wines would draw the same curiosity and reward the consumer with a taste of quality wine. The grapes for the wines are grown on the slopes of the Cape Mountains, benefiting from plentiful sunshine and cool ocean breezes for balanced grapes.

  • Hey everyone, what are some of your favorite 'everyday' or M-F types of wines to accompany a regular dinner?  I personally have enjoyed the Montoya Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa, and I usually pick it up from Total Wines out here in Virginia.  This is one of those fruit-forward cabs that isn't too complex for me to appreciate, and it usually cost...

  • I started this article thinking of pitting Washington State Merlot, arguably the state's most successful varietal wine, against those from California, and to an extent that is what I have done, at multiple price points between $20 and $40. But this exercise turned into something a bit more interesting. It illuminated a few of the basic tenets of... Read More

They're planted and watched closely for any early signs of infestation on the land. They monitor the Roses closely and upon early signs of problems, protective measures are taken to make sure the grape vines receive a s...

  • I love Tall Horse Carbernet Sauvignon. Just one problem. The screw top does not brake when I unscrew it. That means that anyone can open it and it still look if it was not open. Please check it as soon as possible. Thank you
