Testalonga Wines

We currently rent 11ha of vineyards (all from the granite soils of the Paardeberg Swartland) we either farm ourselves or buy from farmers we work very closely with.
Our first wine was a skin contact Chenin blanc in 2008 and from there we have introduced new independent (mostly old) vineyards (Grenache, Muscat, Carignan, Harslevelu, Syrah) that we feel give us the quality we need to make our wines with as little manipulation as possible (in good years its as simple as picking, pressing, waiting, watching, bottling with nothing added at any stage). We want the wines to express who we are both on the label and in the bottle, which is why humour plays an important role in communicating our story.
We recently purchased a farm on the northern mountain regions of the Swartland on Schist soils where from 2016 we will make our wine and eventually start planting vineyards. This year we are planting South Africa's first cuttings of Maccabeu and Vermentino which we have high hopes for.
