They have earned a reputation internationally as a New World leader in the production of Chenin Blanc and Cabernet Franc.

“Bruwer Raats may well be the most exciting and forward-thinking winemaker in Stellenbosch at the moment. No...make that IS the most exciting and forward-thinking winemaker” – Neal Martin, Wine Spectator (Oct 2014).
