Our Story

We Believe In Reverence. In Reinventing The Art Of Winemaking.

Surrounded by majestic mountains, you will discover the quaint village of Franschhoek. Founded by the French Huguenots in 1687, this beautiful area is home to some of South Africa’s most sought-after wine and dine experiences.

It hosts a wide variety of festivals, such as the Bastille festival, the Champagne festival and various others. With unrivaled natural beauty, Franschhoek remains a must see and a place to experience. The splendour and tastes of old, meet the new and modern, in a vibrant dance of colour, culture, taste and hospitality.

Our wines represent our sincerest endeavours to bring the Franschhoek experience to all wine lovers for the sole purpose of enjoyment and as an expression of our appreciation for our good life.

Who are We?

We believe in truth, in seeing opportunities where others see challenges. To thrive where others fail. To push the boundaries of conformity in an industry that has long forgotten to have fun.

To this end, we introduce fun into serious winemaking whilst capturing the taste and terroir of the Franschhoek valley in our wines. Our diverse brand portfolio enables us to provide a range of wines with unique physical characteristics that appeal to different desires, tastes and occasions. It is our firm intent to ensure that our wines and brands are exciting, premium and distinctive at all times.
