More About Our Wine Experts
Botanica Wines - Ginny Povall
Located in Devon Valley within Stellenbosch, Ginny Povall makes wine whilst simultaneously running a luxury guest lodge and protea farm. Known up until recently as ‘Botanica’ the wines now carry the name of the 18th Century British artist, Mary Delany, whose botanical cut-paper collages adorn the label. In August 2009 they began planting their first vineyards. Petit Verdot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. In 2010 they finished their planting with more Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot along with Cabernet Franc. They also selected a small block that is their coolest site for some Pinot Noir. The estate has a total of 21.6 hectares with 10 hectares of flowers and 5 hectares of vineyards. Until now, all of the wines produced have come from contract fruit, whilst Ginny waits for her own vines to mature.
Hogan Wines - Jocelyn Wilson
Hogan Wines is a small, family-run business owned by Jocelyn Hogan Wilson and Dunstan Arthur Hogan. After seven years of working with various wineries in the Cape and overseas, Jocelyn decided to team up with her parents, Dunstan and Trish Hogan. The first harvest was in 2014. Jocelyn’s focus is on old-vine fruit that can tell the story of each vintage, and the vineyard sites are carefully selected to bring out the best qualities of the varieties they work with. For Jocelyn, understanding the nuances of each vineyard is central to making good wine.
