Six principles form the core of our philosophy, "Partnership, Potential, Change, Equity, Dignity and Sustainability". We seek to produce wines that will contribute to the lives of the people whose hard work is expressed in each bottle. There are minimum prices set for grapes and an additional percentage of the sales are given back to the community who uses the money to build schools, clinics and other projects to improve their lives.

in the vineyard : Grapes are sourced from Fairtrade certified vineyards predominantly in the Swartland region. These vineyards are trellised and grow on oak leave soil. The vineyards are meticulously farmed and managed to yield below 7 tons per hectare.

about the harvest: Grapes were handpicked very early in the morning allowing the fruit to retain their natural flavor.
Last week of February

in the cellar : Only the free run juice was used, allowed to settle and inoculated with selected yeast strain, fermenting under controlled conditions at 12 °C. Wine was fermented in French oak for 2 months.
