Lourens Family Wines

If you haven´t yet heard about Franco Lourens - or tasted his wines for that matter, then please allow us to fill in the blanks.

Former Young Gun Franco has vast hands-on experience from international cellars such as Vasse Felix and Ramey, and worked the harvest 2018 with Tom Lubbe at Matassa. Earlier this year he left his dayjob as assistant winmaker to Chris Alheit so he can grow and perfect his own range of wines - at present a white and a red blend, two single vineyard Chenin Blancs and most recently joined by a single vineyard Grenache from Piekenierskloof.
