Hoopenburg is a quality driven, boutique wine farm situated in the Greater Simonsberg wine Ward of Stellenbosch.
It is the only Cape farm where 100% of the wine originates from grapes produced by bush vines.
"You have two choices in life, one, to do things to make money and to be the richest man in the cemetery, or two, to do things well, have some money and be a master of what you do."
The vines are hand pruned and hand harvested. The farm is in a stage of being converted to organic viticulture with certain blocks being taken one step further with the implementation of bio-dynamic viticultural practices.
The wines at Hoopenburg are made in the vineyard meaning that once the fruit reaches the cellar all the hard work is done. The grapes are transformed into natures nectar with minimal intervention from the winemaker. Very little additives are used in the winemaking process, creating a wine as close to nature as possible.
