« Biodynamic winemaking : the future lies right at the beginning. »
In 1863, back when the Reyneke farm first began as ‘Uitzicht’ (which is the Dutch for ‘view’), there were no chemicals or technological advancements. Just the land and nature.
The farm is perched overlooking Stellenbosch and False Bay. It has north, east and south facing slopes. The best land is planted with vines and the remainder complements the vineyards with pasture, compost-making and pockets of wilderness.
It’s the kind of balance that’s far more important than ensuring the spreadsheets all balance out. And it’s the true, time-honoured tradition of winemaking.
