Philosophy

Picking GrapesMont du Toit seeks to produce full-bodied red wines characterized by balance, fruit and elegance. This it achieves by traditional, conservative methods and meticulous attention in vineyard and cellar.

This "traditional" approach eschews "technical" intervention in the wine-making process.

Careful tending of the vineyard, soil renewal through composting, pruning for low yields, selective succouring by hand, verification and control of soil humidity, foliage development, a conservative pest control approach all contribute to producing the best possible grapes.

Mont du Toit subscribes to the Integrated Production of Wine programme. This sets standards for eco-friendly practices in the vineyard and on the farm.
