Producer Profile; 

Third and fourth generation dairymen, Peter and Nick Pentz are hoping that like cream, their Groote Post wines will come out on top.
When they set out to establish their vineyards, they identified 1000 hectares as potential sites for quality vineyards. However, they eventually settled on the best 140 hectares available and have 107 hectares planted to date. Their philosophy has been carried through to the cellar where only the best will be vinified with the remaining grapes being sold off.
Peter and Nick fully support the Biodiversity & Wine Initiative, a partnership between the South African wine industry and the conservation sector to minimise the further loss of threatened natural habitat, and to contribute to sustainable wine production, through the adoption of biodiversity guidelines by the South African wine industry. This care for nature and the environment shows in their wines, from soil to bottle, every stage of the winemaking process is given the attention it needs to produce the most enjoyable wines.
