We specialise in small batches of alternative varietals and unique terroir-expressive blends. In the spirit of working with nature, we embrace old world wine making techniques such as natural fermentation, wholebunch fermentation, basket pressing, manual pumpovers and gentle maturation in older French oak.
Our vines were planted in 1999 as a passion project for Hennie, whose Stellenbosch wine-loving roots and pioneering spirit led him to plant small blocks of cabernet, merlot, shiraz, petit verdot, tannat, viognier and colombard. Small batches of Bordeaux and Rhône style blends have been produced since 2006 in collaboration with various winemaker friends in the Cape Winelands.
The first single cultivar wines under the Lowerland label were produced in 2013. In 2015, we registered Prieska as a wine producing region to hail a new era for wines from the Northern Cape. We are collaborating with talented, innovative winemakers to bring exciting, quality wines of origin Prieska to your glass.
