In the unique world of creating distinctive wines, winemaker Bertus Fourie is a legend. He earned the nickname ‘Starbucks’ for his exceptional skill in producing the coffee-flavoured Barista Pinotage. Building on this first success, Bertus has now literally splashed out with the delicious Barista Chardonnay and its decidedly citrusy notes. Join us in exploring them both, pronto.
The grapes that go into each bottle of Barista wine are picked optimally ripe during mid-February, with different batches treated in various ways. Explore our Pinotage and Chardonnay to find out more about the inspiration behind each.
Pinotage is one of the most versatile wines when it comes to pairing with food. The full-fruited flavour and the hint of coffee in our Barista Pinotage make it very adaptable and such fun to experiment with in the kitchen. Winemaker Bertus Fourie loves to play with food and is an ardent cook and recipe-developer. Some of his favourites are available here for you to try out
– with a glass of Barista Pinotage at hand, of course.
