A Pinotage Love Affair
Beeslaar Wines is a small family-run business, specializing in the production of handcrafted, high-end Pinotage wines, originating from a single-vineyard site in the heart of the Cape Winelands.
My love affair with Pinotage led me to establishing the brand in 2011, with the aim to produce wines that embody and personify the many beautiful characteristics of a grape variety that was born and bred in South African soils.

“Pinotage is not for sissies”, words legendary South African winemaker Jan “Boland” Coetzee will use to explain the challenges of Pinotage to other winemakers.
It was these challenges and the exposure to great old vines bearing unique grapes that started my love affair with Pinotage.
If you are lucky enough to have the right terroir and put in the effort that Pinotage deserves, there is no wine more rewarding.
