Blow off some steam! ⁣⠀ ⁣⠀ During steam distillation, essential oils are released from florals and foliage by gentle pressure and heated steam. After the vapour moves through a condenser and cools, the essential oil separates from the water and rises to the top. ⁣⠀ ⁣⠀ The remaining floral water or hydrosol gets bottled up as fragrant room spray or refreshing spritz. Our favourites are rose geranium, lavender and rosemary.⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #babylonstoren #franschhoek #capewinelands #farmlife #winecountry #fragrance #scented #essentialoil #essentialoils #allnatural #rosegeranium #lavender #rosemary

Take your thyme. ⁣⠀ ⁣⠀ The ancient Greeks believed thyme to be a bearer of courage, so they used it as incense or in their baths.

Bellissimo! ⁣⠀ ⁣⠀ We started experimenting with a Cape balsamic vinegar in the traditional Italian DOP style. To get going, we imported Italian barrels, made by F. Renzi, together with genuine 12-year-old DOP balsamic vinegar from Modena. We started our own run with our excellent shiraz grapes, but we'll have to wait a few years to try it. ⁣⠀ ⁣⠀ In the meantime, have a taste of our Aceto Balsamico. ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #babylonstoren #franschhoek #capewinelands #farmlife #winecountry #balsamicvinegar #balsamico #acetobalsamico #modena #balsamic #winewednesday #vino #wineanddine #vino #winery #winelife #winenight

It's olive season and we're all hands on deck in the olive press. ⁣ ⁣ Tip: cold-pressed or first cold pressed refers to the temperature at extraction, for extra virgin olive oil this may not be higher than 30 degrees Celcius. By keeping the temperatures low, the great taste and health benefits are kept intact. ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #farmlife #farmtotable #inseason #inseasonnow #farmtofork #eatseasonal #farmfresh #oliveoil #evoo #olives #extravirginoliveoil #franschhoek #babylonstoren #capewinelands #feedfeed #instafood #oliveseason

🍇It's our final week of harvesting and we're picking the rest of the red grapes – cabernet sauvignon high up in the mountain.🍇⁣ ⁣ The much-needed rain has delayed the harvest quite a bit. Too much water messes with the sugar and acid balance in the grapes, essentially diluting it. So after each burst of rain, our winemakers have to wait until it returns to the desired level. ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #babylonstoren #franschhoek #capewinelands #farmlife #winecountry #wine #winewednesday #vino #winetime #instawine #wineoclock #justwine #roseallday #wineanddine #wein #winelife #winelover #winestagram #winetasting #vino #winery #winelife #winecountry #winenight #winemaking #saharvest2019
