Originally the winemaking project of boyhood friends Francis Pratt (wine grower) and Bruce Jack (Flagstone wine maker) who together produced seven vintages of two wines - Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Sauvignon until the joint venture dissolved due to the sale of the Flagstone brand in March 2008.
The winemaking was then bought back to the farm from Flagstone in Cape Town where Francis is now both wine grower and wine maker. These sought after wines are created from the cooling effects from maritime winds blowing in on three sides of the vineyards, allowing the grapes to spend longer on the vine producing wines with greater intensity of flavour with each vintage. These conditions provide the perfect environment for making Sauvignon Blanc.
If you make a journey to the southernmost tip of Africa wine region then make sure you stop by and enjoy tasting these unique and unusual wines particularly ‘Weather Girl’, a Semillion / Sauvignon Blanc blend, The Berrio Sauvignon Blanc, The Berrio Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir and Shiraz.
