For the real wine connaisseur

The cellar only produces 8000 bottles per year. This is 2000 bottles of each wine. Virtually all end up in the private cellars of wine collectors around the globe. Grapes are grown organically and no additives are used during fermentation and further processing. Bottled and labeled by hand.

The fire

It’s not only California that suffers from fire during the Summer months. It’s Summer here in South Africa and almost no day without a fire in the Western Cape. Recently, for the second time in a month, just outside our village.
