Our Founders

The Couple Behind The Wine

“Our certified single vineyards are in the heart of the beautiful Robertson Valley alongside the Breede River in the Western Cape, South Africa.

The vineyards are positioned in sandy silt soil, ideal for cultivating our premium wines. The upper soil is deep loam enriched with lime.

Come for the taste. Stay for the lifestyle. Discover plenty of wine.”
