Boutinot has been making wines in South Africa since the early 1990s.
Our team scoured the land for interesting and often unloved varietals, and we introduced what - back then - were considered crazy practices such as wild yeast ferments and non-interventionist viticulture with our partner growers.
Now we have a home of our own.
Wildeberg (‘wild mountain’) is literally a place ‘on the edge’, of Franschhoek and the mountains themselves.
1. A place of untameable wild beauty; having a magical energy which is hard to define
2. A practical place to work, blend & stay; a kitchen
3. A place to relax, kick back, chill out
The early 1990s is when we first scoured the land for interesting and often unloved grape varieties...
