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 just recently worked the harvest 2018 with Tom Lubbe at Matassa. His dayjob is, however, as assistant winmaker to Chris Alheit while he still manages to grow and perfect his own range of wines - at present a white and a red blend, recently joined by two single vineyard Chenin Blancs.
