It all starts with a lengthy exploration to find the right vineyards in the right soils. Our small, boutique winery focuses on discovering the magic of the old vines in the Swartland (and certain beautiful pockets of the Voor-Paardeberg and Piekenierskloof) that provide an exceptional expression of the schist, granite en iron soils in which it grows.
As shared custodians of the lands that house these vineyards, we also ensure that we partner with growers who farm sustainably in order to produce top-quality grapes without compromising the environment, and the vineyards themselves, in the long run.
Once the grapes are ready, we step in as interpreters of their natural song. Great wine starts in the vineyard, and we believe our job is merely to guide it carefully through the cellar with minimum intervention. To this end, we only use indigenous yeast and no additives, except a touch of sulphur. Once ready, our wines are then put to rest in a combination of neutral oak and concrete to amplify its sensory rhythms and cadence.
