Our Story

We strive to reflect the proud heritage of our wine industry and country’s true warmth in hospitality.
My childhood spent growing up on a farm in the Southern Drakensberg in KwaZulu-Natal and Cape Winelands

stimulated my eighth generation farming interest in viticulture and winemaking.
After 15 vintages working with exceptional vineyard sites, I’m fulfilling my goal of reflecting South Africa’s
unique
 vineyard sites in limited quantities of naturally hand crafted wines.

Growing up on a wine estate in Stellenbosch Monique developed a natural affinity for hospitality and wine.
Her experience of over a decade in the industry supports our passion to combine
 wine,
food and true Cape Winelands hospitality.

We hope you enjoy our passion for what we love doing.
Kind regards, Matthew and Monique.

My Winemaking Philosophy

My wines reflect my dedicated pursuit of making authentic natural wines of utmost quality and fruit purity reflecting my country’s unique diversity of Terroir.
I place the highest emphasis on viticulture and sustainable farming methods ensuring exceptional fruit to capture an elegant style of fruit expression and age ability.
My focus has been to work with small batch lots within each vineyard in order to separate the slightest variance of flavour achieving a wine with layers of complexity.
Small barrel lot production, wild yeast fermentation and minimal intervention allow my wines to express specific grape characteristics and provide a quality framework.
This limited production allows me to focus my careful attention to detail from the natural changes in the vineyard, grape selection and my winemaking methods.
I hope you enjoy my passion for reflecting my country’s unique vineyard sites in their most natural light.
