TESTALONGA is owned by Craig & Carla Hawkins.
It was established in 2008 with the first wine being a four week Skin Macerated Chenin blanc.
We currently rent 11ha of organically farmed vineyards all based on the granite soils of the Paardeberg, and 4 ha on the Sandstone soils of the Piketberg.
In 2015 we purchased a farm on the slate soils of the northern mountains of the Swartland called Bandits Kloof.
The first vineyards were planted in 2018 on Bandits Kloof, the focus of the farm being Mediterranean grape varieties
We strive to make wine from grapes and nothing else.
