WINE PHILOSOPHY

Our philosophy is to combine the exceptional conditions of this new world terroir with the most outstanding French varieties to create the best of both worlds.

We give our full attention to the vineyards ensuring that the fruits grown and harvested are of exceptional quality. In the cellar we respect the fruit by using the simplest and most natural methods to bring out the true characteristics of the grapes and then to finally capture it in a bottle.

Bushmanspad was totally renovated in 2000 and 2001 after which 52 hectares of vineyards were planted, now in their prime and it proves again that a good wine can only be made when things are right in the vineyards.

Our winemaker Arthur Basson and proprietor Menno Schaafsma form a very inspired partnership and together strive to produce terrior driven wines to showcase our unique area.
