Guess who’s also 75?

That’s right, Joan Baez shares her birth year with us!

Joan Baez (born January 9, 1941 as Joan Chandos Baez) is an American folk singer, songwriter, musician, and activist whose contemporary folk music often includes songs of protest or social justice. Baez has performed publicly for over 55 years, releasing over 30 albums. Fluent in Spanish as well as in English, she has also recorded songs in at least six other languages. She is regarded as a folk singer, although her music has diversified since the counterculture days of the 1960s and now encompasses everything from folk rock and pop to country and gospel music. Although a songwriter herself, Baez generally interprets other composers’ work, having recorded songs by the Allman Brothers Band, the Beatles, Jackson Browne, Leonard Cohen, Woody Guthrie, Violeta Parra, The Rolling Stones, Pete Seeger, Paul Simon, Stevie Wonder and many others. In recent years, she has found success interpreting songs of modern songwriters such as Ryan Adams, Josh Ritter, Steve Earle and Natalie Merchant. Her recordings include many topical songs and material dealing with social issues.

She began her recording career in 1960 and achieved immediate success. Her first three albums, Joan Baez, Joan Baez Vol. 2, and Joan Baez in Concert all achieved gold record status and stayed on the Billboard and other record album charts for two years.

Baez has had a popular hit song with “Diamonds & Rust” and hit covers of Phil Ochs’s “There but for Fortune” and The Band’s “The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down”. Other songs associated with Baez include “Farewell, Angelina”, “Love Is Just a Four-Letter Word”, “Joe Hill”, “Sweet Sir Galahad” and “We Shall Overcome”. She was one of the first major artists to record the songs of Bob Dylan in the early 1960s; Baez was already an internationally celebrated artist and did much to popularize his early songwriting efforts. Baez also performed three songs at the 1969 Woodstock Festival and has displayed a lifelong commitment to political and social activism in the fields of nonviolence, civil rights, human rights and the environment.

Here’s a trip down memory lane, in celebration of exceptional wine paired with legendary music.

We've won DOUBLE GOLD at this year's Rosé Rocks Competition, just in time for #InternationalRoséDay tomorrow!
Celebrate with us by purchasing a bottle of our Pinotage Rosé! #Cheers
www.riebeekcellars.com/shop/The 2018 Rosé Rocks competition results are out! First up, the Double Gold winners and a word from our panel chair, Allan Mullins.

"The Rosé Rocks competition continues to go from strength to strength with very high quality entries this year which reflect the increasing skill and attention South African winemakers are applying to this growing category. The trend continues to favor the drier styles with soft floral notes and a pale onion skin appearance. I can confidently say that South African rosé wines compare to the best that the French, Spanish or any other producing nation have to offer. As we come into the summer season again now we must look forward to enjoying these delicious refreshing wines outdoors with everything from seafood to pasta and salads to our favorite braai items or indeed, on their own.”

This is the man who discovered Riebeek Valley in 1661, so we named a sparkling wine after him. Can you guess what it is called?
