The Story of False Bay Wines

False Bay Vineyards is more than just a wine producer; it’s a story of passion, innovation, and a relentless pursuit of quality. Founded by Paul Boutinot in 1994, False Bay Vineyards was born out of a desire to rescue grapes from old, balanced, and under-appreciated vineyards that were destined to be lost in the large co-operative blends dominating South Africa’s wine industry at the time.

Boutinot, a pioneer in his field, transformed these Cape gems into wines with minimal intervention, using wild yeast ferments and no acid additions. This approach was quite revolutionary at the time, swimming against the tide of conventional winemaking. Today, this ethos continues under the watchful eye of Waterkloof’s Cellar Master, Nadia Barnard, who ensures that every bottle of False Bay wine is a true expression of its terroir.

A Diverse Portfolio of Wines

Our False Bay range includes a variety of wines, each with its unique character and flavour profile. The ‘Bush Vine’ Pinotage, for instance, is a robust red wine that beautifully captures the spirit of South Africa’s signature grape. The Chenin Blanc, on the other hand, is a crisp, refreshing white wine that pairs wonderfully with a variety of dishes.

The False Bay Crystalline Chardonnay is another standout, offering a clean, unoaked expression of this popular varietal. And let’s not forget the False Bay Sauvignon Blanc, a wine that showcases the vibrant, fruity character that this grape is known for.

Sustainable Winemaking Practices

At False Bay Vineyards, respect for nature is at the heart of everything they do. The vineyards are sustainably farmed, with a focus on maintaining balance in the ecosystem. This approach not only benefits the environment but also contributes to the quality of the wines, as healthier vineyards produce better grapes.
