Red Wines

The wines in our varietal range celebrate Douglas Green’s inspired journey of exploration across the Cape Winelands in search of the blueprint for his remarkable vintages. Each wine is an individual tip of the hat to this enigmatic leader who had the courage to break with convention and follow his instincts in search of the grapes that would bring to fruition his vision of singular character and style.
