About the Estate

Carinus logoThe Carinus family have been involved in the South African wine industry for five generations, growing fruit in Stellenbosch and the Swartland, which they supply to some of the country’s foremost award-winning winemakers.

Over the years the family have adapted their approach to focus more on quality rather than quantity as a manifestation of their belief that that wine is made in the vineyard.

In 2011 cousins Danie and Hugo Carinus decided it was time to use the grapes they grow to make their own wine too, which was the start of Carinus Family Wines. The result is two Chenin Blancs from their Swartland grapes; the Rooidraai Chenin Blanc and the Carinus Chenin Blanc. A Syrah was later added to their collection, made from the grapes grown on their Polkadraai property in Stellenbosch.

About the Winery

Van Loggerenberg Wines logoLukas van Loggerenberg has always been a big fan of wine from the Loire Valley in France. The freshness and vibrancy of the whites, together with their ageing ability, really appeal to him, while the focus and precision of the reds is what he respects most.

Even though Lukas grew up around wine – in the Breedekloof Valley– and studied viticulture and oenology at Elsenburg, the defining moment in his wine journey happened on a trip to France, where at Domaine de La Chevalerie the winemaker Stephanie opened a 1989 Cab Franc that took his breath away. Right there Lukas decided to start his own wine label.

Van Loggerenberg wines are produced using fruits from some of the best vineyards in the Cape, farmed by talented and passionate farmers. Great wine, for this label, is about knowing when to pick the grapes. And because they don’t add any enzymes or fining agents the margin for error is very small. The result? Great wines, made with passion.

Lukas van Loggerenberg was named as winemaker in Wine Cellar’s 2017 Young Guns and his wines described by Wine Mag editor Christian Eedes as “pretty damn hot”.
