Ever since Paul Boutinot founded FALSE BAY VINEYARDS in 1997, we’ve had a healthy obsession with the idea that it is in fact possible to craft affordable wines in an authentic, more natural way. The proviso is that the ingredients must be up to the challenge and we’re not talking about ascorbic acid, oak powder, enzymes, powdered tannins or ‘designer’ yeast here. It’s the grapes. Since taking over as FALSE BAY VINEYARDS winemaker in 2013 Nadia Langenegger has continued this quest, scouring the coastal regions of South Africa’s Western Cape in a relentless pursuit of naturally balanced vineyards. So, we were delighted to read that the range recently received its best ever results in South Africa’s leading Wine Guide – PLATTER’S 2023.
A whopping seven wines from FALSE BAY VINEYARDS grabbed GOOD VALUE awards scoring 3.5 STARS (‘very good’) – 4 STARS (‘excellent’).
