Philippe took a punt on Chenin, and it paid off big time

  • After studying food & wine, Philippe spent some time at a friends vineyard and was so taken with it, that he came straight home and started his own winemaking business with his father.
  • He took a massive gamble back in 2001, when he ripped up their Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc vines in favour of lesser known Chenin Blanc ones. The bold move paid off and nowadays they are producing some of the top Chenin in the region.
  • To Philippe, the beauty of his job is creating delicious wines for people to enjoy. He thrives on the patience and precision required and won’t shy away from taking a little risk every now and then. In short, he’s nailed what being a winemaker is all about!
