Owners Andries & Marinda Blake have a commitment to quality and are passionate about crafting exceptional wines. They nurture their wines and create gems. This philosophy has led to naming their two flag ship blends after semi-precious stones – Tourmaline and Amethyst.
Blake Family Wines focus on top quality, family produced boutique wine from the sought after Swartland region. Andries knows the terroir very well, as he has been a wine maker in the Swartland area since 1995. This enables him to source top quality grapes from selected vineyards from the heart of the Swartland. The terroir has proven to be ideal for the cultivation of bush vine vineyards and for crafting exceptional wines.
