The driving force behind Boutinot South Africa is their passion for discovery and desire to capture the real essence of South Africa in every bottle. It was the simple love of Loire Chenin Blanc that first led them to South Africa in 1994, where they pioneered the ‘wild yeast’ ferment style that has now been adopted by many producers in this region. Since then they have been exploring the land for amazing vineyards to make fabulous wines from specific sites and plots that scream location, location, location!
Their winemaking team is headed up by Marinda Kruger-van Eck, who confesses “We put as much, if not more, thought and effort into making our ‘entry level’ wines as our more premium ones”. The key is knowing the characteristics of each plot, understanding the benefits each grape can bring, and using this information to break rules and push boundaries. “I use a combination of my knowledge and love of nature and science to create versatile, expressive and food-friendly wines from this fascinating country”.
