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. All our wines are Fairtrade and WIETA accredited meaning we look after the people who produce our wines. 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 for excellent growing conditions and ripening of the grapes. The farm also has an above-average rainfall of just under 570 mm for the West Coast.

about the harvest: The grapes were harvested by hand at 23.5° to 24.7° Balling at the end of January and early February.
The bush vines harvested for this wine were planted in 1994 and yielded around 5 tons/ha.

in the cellar : The juice was fermented in temperature-­?controlled stainless steel tanks. After fermentation the wine was racked of its gross lees and then stabilised and bottled.
