Franschhoek’s wine dog for August – meet Bella!
A Doberman by birth, but I’m classified as a ‘rescue dog’ to those who know my story. Call me Bella Bok and My Wyn is where you’ll find me.
Still young at heart I’m almost four years old, and my story begins when my owner Jacoline Haasbroek discovered me roaming the streets of Cape Town, where she saved me and introduced me to a better life. I’m best described as being hyperactive, which is part of the fun when I welcome visitors to the estate as they enter the property. Sometimes I feel that the visitors are taking way too long with the tasting, because they need to pay attention to me. To get their attention I jab the visitor on the elbow, as they’re about to nose the wine. It is a sight to behold, but according to my human mother, I’m much loved. After all what would a wine estate be without a dog?
Please come and visit the rest of my furry friends at our farm, Uithoek Farm, Uitkyk Street in Franschhoek.
