I never had the opportunity to meet Oupa Willem, but I’ve been told so many wonderful stories about him. One of my fondest was hearing that his horse and dog always came first, and the rest of the world, second. No question, he was my grandfather.


For a long time I have wanted to make a Cinsault and Cabernet Sauvignon blend. I have tasted and enjoyed many of these blends that date back to the 60’s / 70’s. They are still aging gracefully, drinking beautifully, and I believe we are losing out on our heritage by not sticking to these classics.


In naming this Cape Heritage Blend, I kept going back to Oupa Willem. I believe his spirit and his stories are inherent in this wine, and I hope he would be proud to know that.
