About Us

Prof. Wessel du Toit who presents the popular garagiste wine making short course at Stellenbosch University found there is a need for aspirant winemakers to grapes, equipment, chemicals, yeast and bottles at reasonable prices in small quantities. He assisted Louis du Toit in compiling a winemaking kit that fulfil in this need and compiled the booklet on how to use the kit.

Louis has been marketing the kit since 2005 and had very good feedback from satisfied clients from all over South Africa.

“Quality wine is the heritage of quality grapes. This is not negotiable to us.”
