Welcome to The Wine Farm

May 24, 2018

We’ve just started a conversation with people who value the same sort of wine as us – wine that is pure; wine that shows place not process – and are interested in how it’s achieved.

If you’d like to hear more about the wine we make and how we make it, as well as getting first dibs on new wines at subscriber prices, subscribe below to our brand new weekly-ish updates.

We’ll talk about things like soil health, the importance of picking dates, whether wood is just for building houses and our thoughts on ‘natural wine’, carbonic maceration and other winemaking trends.

Every now and then we’ll offer up a new wine to try with information about how it came to be. And the first wine from our 2017 vintage is very nearly ready to release so watch this space…

Cheers,
Anna and Neil

  • No place like home

    We’re always talking about the importance of wines being allowed to show ‘place’ – keeping the fruit pure to let it express the soil in which it grew. So given we’re very nearly ready to share the first of our 2017 wines with you, we thought we should tell you a bit about our place first. What’s so special about The Wine Farm?

  • Daddy, you smell like soil

    In Neil’s native South Africa, where he studied and started his career in wine, vineyards are commonly referred to as ‘wine farms’. The focus is on growing grapes and the people who grow them are farmers.

  • Pure ain’t simple

    June 8, 2018

    Here at The Wine Farm we work hard to make pure wine that shows place not process.

    It’s taken us a long time to come up with those few words, and while they might not sound like much to you they mean the world to us.
