W.O Western Cape

All the "mooi meisies" come from Stellenbosch & some few mooi wines as well

Back label:

Early in the Boer War this inscription was scrawled on a Boer farmhouse wall: "We are bound to win this war, Kruger has 90,000 burgers, that means 90,000 Generals, and the English have 200,000 soldiers but only one real General, General French."

General John Denton Pinkstone French, later Field Marshal and the first Earl of Ypres, led the cavalry charge that relieved Kimberley, where Cecil John Rhodes and Lord Baden Powell were incarcerated. He was also involved in many other epic battles with the Boers.

Over the years bitter memories fade. Now 110 years later, two direct descendants of President Kruger and General French have combined forces. The motto of Boer & Brit winemakers Alexander Milner and Stefan Gerber is living proof: "The war is over... let's party!"

Producer Information

The Boer, is Stefan Gerber, great-great grandson of President Paul Kruger, with a massive passion for Sauvignon Blanc, Shiraz and Mediterranean varietals.

The Brit, is Alex Milner, wine-maker at Natte Valleij (after stints in the South of France and India) and great-great grandson of Field Marshall French - who led the Relief of Kimberley - with a passion for Petit Verdot, Bordeaux-blends and anything odd.

110 years ago, these two best friends (they met at Stellenbosch while studying viticulture & oenology) forefathers were bitter enemies and now they've combined to make wines for all the people of South Africa (and the world) to enjoy.
