Our wines are created in the hope of planting the seeds of appreciation for people that have touched our lives and yours. Our two flagship wines have big shoes to fill.
This complex white blend, Christina
was named after our grandmother
who is a true lady of stature
and grace, with an irresistible
zest for life.
This well balanced red blend, John David
was named after our late grandfather -
a man of great character and virtue,
but who also had great big hugs,
stories and belly laughs.
We aim to create wines that are interesting, but not overly complex. Drinking our wines should be a fun and enjoyable experience, so when you feel like finishing the whole bottle – you can!
We’re proud of the fact that our wines are best enjoyed with good food and great company. Want to taste it like a pro? Here are a few wine tasting tips.

2010 turned out to be a big year for us. It was shortly after celebrating our twin boys’ third birthday that we started “blending” our dreams into reality.
Since we are both winemakers, our vision was clear:
Making use of interesting and unique varietals to produce one-of-a-kind blends
that signified what we believe a great wine should taste like.
Agaat is a semi-precious gemstone created by concentric layers of mineral salts. It was the mention of all those layers that really brought it home for us, as that’s exactly how this undertaking has been. Our dream of creating incredible and unique wines was brought to life layer for layer through the help and support of family and friends, who each contributed their own little layer to our story.
Furthermore, it’s also believed that the stone enhances creativity and stimulates the intellect – which is what happens when you enjoy great wines. To our delight we came to learn that Agaat is the mythical birthstone of Gemini, the month in which our twin boys were born.
We discovered that Gemini is believed to be most compatible with our respective star signs. Therefore we adopted Agaat as our family stone to symbolise that we are all inherently connected.
"I like to blend wines that are like life itself – complex, with unexpected surprises."
"I am not a wine purist in any sense, I simply enjoy everything about wine – the vineyards, blending, bottling, marketing, packaging, and above all – the tasting!"
