B Vintners is a joint venture between Bruwer Raats, Owner and Winemaker of Raats Family Wines and his cousin, Gavin Bruwer Slabbert, who joined Bruwer as Winemaker and Viticulturist in 2009. B Vintners are focussing on creating a brand of single vineyard hand-crafted wines; the first being the Muscat d’ Alexandrie 2014 from a tiny vineyard in Helderberg.
The old vineyards are planted exclusively on decomposed granite soils, they are high-lying and in close proximity to the ocean. This combined with the philosophy of picking grapes when they are fresh and ripe, extracting flavours optimally, as well as using good judgement when integrating oak, is extremely important when crafting this special wine.
The Cape of Good Hope is home to Pinotage. In the 1920’s it was born from the crossing of Pinot Noir and Cinsaut, it is of great importance to wine making in South Africa and part of their country’s rich heritage. So they believe Pinotage must be celebrated.
B Vintners explore vineyards and celebrates the rich heritage of the Cape of Good Hope, with artisan crafted wines. Liberté was made with minimal intervention, to allow this African variety, to show its true sense of place and express itself as desired.
