SAUVIGNON BLANC is a white-wine grape from western France, now successfully grown in emerging and established wine regions all over the world. While widely associated with the Loire Valley, it is more likely to have originated from Bordeaux where it is typically blended with Semillon. The classic Sauvignon Blanc experience ranges from grass, nettles, blackcurrant leaf and asparagus to green apples and gooseberries.
MAN Family Wines was established in 2001 when three friends got together with the aim of making quality wine with smart packaging at an affordable price. Needing a name that would unite their three families, they took their wives’ initials - Marie, Anette and Nicky - to create MAN Family Wines. Owners Jos Conde and brothers Tyrrel and Philip Myburgh are supported by 30 dedicated grape growers from the Agter-Paarl region who are all accredited as environmentally sustainable and socially responsible farmers by the South African Integrated Production of Wine (IPW) scheme and the South African Wine Industry Ethical Trade Association (WIETA). Production may have grown from just 300 cases to over 175,000 cases per year, but the wines are still modern and distinctive with a touch of Old World elegance.
STELLENBOSCH, SOUTH AFRICA - Stellenbosch is located just 25 miles east of Cape Town and is the most famous wine-producing region in South Africa, home to the country’s best-known wine estates. The Vineyards cover gently rolling hills of granite and sandstone soils, and climatic conditions are suitable for the cultivation of all sorts of grape varieties. However, Cabernet Sauvignon is the region's most successful variety, and is often combined with Merlot to create Bordeaux Blend wines of great quality.
