Blouvlei Range

In keeping with his enlightened employment policies, Stephan du Toit, some nine years ago, started up Blouvlei Wyne. Through this enterprise the employees of Mont du Toit have a direct interest in the production and sale of wines. Blouvlei produces a Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot blend and a Sauvignon Blanc. Its wines are aimed at everyday drinking. The wines are sold locally and are also exported.

Stephan says: "It's about sharing. I wanted to involve the workers on the farm and in the cellar, improve their life prospects and give them and interest in the business. All of the workers are shareholders in the company."

The red grapes come from the Mont du Toit farm, and the red wines are made in Mont du Toit's cellar. Although the wines are made by the same "hand-crafted" method as Mont du Toit's top quality red blends, Blouvlei's wines are made to be drunk earlier.

As Mont du Toit has only red varietals planted across its 28 hectares, the Sauvignon Blanc comes from grapes sourced in the neighbourhood.

Blouvlei is supported technically, financially and managerially by Mont du Toit.
