Springfield wine estate is the home of Life from Stone Sauvignon Blanc and Whole Berry Cabernet Sauvignon two of the most loved wines from the Robertson region. Springfield wine Estate has been pushing barriers in terms of experimenting with new cultivars and blends like Miss Lucy and the Spanish Albariño. Springfield wine farm also produces old world style wines such as the acclaimed The Work Of Time bordeaux blend and Thunderchild.
The wine estate is set in the heart of the mountain-ringed Robertson Valley in the Western Cape of South Africa. Springfield Estate is a family-run wine farm owned by ninth-generation descendants of French Huguenots, who came to South Africa from the Loire in 1688 with bundles of vines under their arms. The present generation to tend the rocky Springfield soils, brother-and-sister team Abrie and Jeanette Bruwer are the 4th generation to do so, and are prepared to take risks to do what they love best – making wine.
Assisted by a team of dedicated workers, many of whom have been with the Bruwers for decades, winemaker and viticulturist Abrie keeps a watchful eye on the vineyards and the wines, while sister Jeanette co-ordinates the marketing of the wines both locally and abroad. Back on the estate, she’s hands on, involved in everything from preparing the soil for new plantings to driving the forklift. Using a combination of sometimes risky wine making techniques, traditional methods and modern technology, along with a sense of practicality and dogged determination borne from living off the land all their lives, the Bruwer family is able to handcraft wine true to its motto: Made on Honour.
