He left his high-flying job making SA's favourite wines to pursue the next best underground find

    • Francois has worked for some of the world’s most iconic brands, including Dry Creek Vineyard in Sonoma, Jackson Estate in Marlborough, and Waterford Estate back home in Stellenbosch.
    • His real passion however, is seeking out under the radar parcels to craft boutique wines - so in 2014 he ditched the high-flying day job to turn his hand to making the next great underground wine.
    • Francois now focuses exclusively on creating high quality, single-vineyard wines from small-scale sites hidden away all over the Western Cape. He built long lasting relationships with the growers and made wines true to their site of origin, with as little human jiggery-pokery as possible.
