Our 294ha Estate is minutes away from the charming and rustic town of Wellington in South Africa’s Western Cape. Proceeds from this wine range (of a Rand a bottle sold) are donated annually to support our conservation partner. We are aligned to Rhinos without Borders who translocate the animals to Botswana. We are deeply committed to sustainability in all our farming practices, protecting our Rhino field, eradicating alien vegetation and recycling water.

about the harvest: Grapes were hand picked in the early hours of the harvesting day from selected vineyard blocks on the Estate.

in the cellar : They were destemmed, crushed and pressed before undergoing a controlled fermentation in stainless steel tanks, with twice daily pump overs. The wine was stabilised, filtered and bottled into a lightweight 350gr bottle before being distributed.
