The acacias, or thorn trees, are one of the most typical sights of the African veld, with umbrella crowns providing welcome shade to humans and animals alike. Their defensive thorns were even used as needles by some African tribes. Rugged and tough, they are a symbol of the undoubtable spirit of Africa herself.
Owner/winemaker Andre Badenhorst has been immersed in the Cape wine tradition all his life, spending his childhood at Groot Constantia, South Africa’s oldest wine farm. Comments Andre “I was involved in the production of only expensive wines, but it became a passion of mine to produce a wine without all the glitter and fanfare, that people could not only enjoy, but also marvel at the affordable price”.
