AHRENS FAMILY WINES
Albert Ahrens earned his stripes in the Swartland with Lammershoek, before working in Champagne, Priorat and the Rhône Valley. His wines are terroir-driven wines all over the Cape, taking in the Swartland, Voor-Paardeberg, Stellenbosch (Bottelary to be precise), Franschhoek and Elgin. Wines that, in Albert’s words, have “an address” to them, an identity wound up in the environment. We concentrate on his Swartland wines.
