Villiera Tradition Brut Cap Classique 75cl


Tasting Note


This substantial farm on the edge of the Stellenbosch appellation was purchased by the Grier’s in 1983, although they elected to keep the name of the previous owners, the de Villiers family. Of the 400 hectares, around half is dedicated to vineyards with the balance set aside as a wildlife reserve. This is the quintessential family business, with cousins Simon and Jeff working in the vines and cellar respectively, whilst Jeff’s sister, Cathy, runs the sales and marketing.

Simon Grier is a supporter of 'green' viticulture, but doesn't seek certification. With over 400 ha in the estate (half is set aside as a wildlife reserve) they focus on sparkling wines. OK so the label sucks, but the contents are outstanding.
