“It was improbable that I would ever find the plot of land needed, but my worldwide search spanning more than a decade ended when we discovered a natural amphitheatre lying 1000 feet above and just two miles from False Bay on the Schapenberg. 

Decisions were then taken on appropriate cultivars, planting density and training. Biodynamic farming practices were implemented. Vinification and maturation techniques were determined, a cellar was designed to facilitate these methods and construction began. The final and critical ingredient? A great team of people with a common goal: To produce fine wine.”

—Paul Boutinot, Former waiter, sommelier, wine importer, winemaker and now Custodian at Waterkloof
