Scrucap wines by LUX* Resorts & Hotels have been honoured by a feature in the world known John Platter wine guide. It is a great recognition by the South Africa’s first and still best-selling wine annual.

Guests of LUX* Resorts & Hotels staying in Mauritius, Réunion and the Maldives are being invited to ‘say farewell to corks and Old World wines and say hi to Scrucap, a collection of exclusive South African wines specially selected’ for the hotel group. Consultant Kent Scheermeyer says the aim is to offer ‘fresh, sexy’ wines that combine quality and value - a goal that should be met, considering the elite Cape wine sources: Paul Cluver, De Grendel, Steenberg, Winery of Good Hope and Mullineux Family.“It’s an incredible honour to receive these prestigious ratings. 

The vineyards were made up of wines of fantastic quality, made by passionate and talented winemakers; this makes this feature more surprising and special for us. While I’m thankful for the acknowledgement, it’s also about the team back at the winery, and the skill and passion of everyone involved LUX* Resorts & Hotels” believes Paul Jones, CEO of LUX* Resorts & Hotels.
