Blackwater wines are focused on sourcing fruit from the best possible vineyards across the Western Cape, building long lasting relationships with the growers and do my utmost to make wines true to their origin. With the minimal intervention ethos in the cellar, it all comes down to the grapes, no wine making tricks – just sticking to the basics and attention to details.


Francois Haasbroeck, the winemaker behind the wines, personally enjoys wines built on natural acidity & grape tannin, not plastered under layers of oak with countless additions and manipulations forced upon it.
