Earthbound Wines are born of harmony between man and nature and this principle applies to every aspect of the winemaking process and beyond. Our vines are planted and maintained in line with ecological and sustainable farming practices and are certified as organic by Lacon and our commitment to the earth and the people who make our wines doesn’t end with the harvest.

At Earthbound we truly believe that what is good for the earth is good for its people, and vice versa.

in the vineyard : The deep, red Tukulu soils of Papkuilsfontein situated just 25km from the sea, have an excellent capacity to retain water. The cooling Atlantic Ocean breezes and a protective range of hillocks, create an optimal micro-climate. The farm also has an above-average rainfall of just under 570 mm for the West Coast.

in the cellar : Fermentation took place over 18 days at 24° to 26° C until dry. The wine was pressed and racked into 6000 litre vats and after two months was racked into a stainless steel tanks. In line with organic requirements, total sulphur levels were kept below 100 pmm (compared with 160 ppm for regular wines).
