'N nuwe soort van Suid-Afrikaanse wynprodusent... (A new type of South African wine producer.)
Edo Heyns is editor of Winelands magazine. JD Pretorious (in vines, right) is winemaker at Steenberg farm in Constantia. Jan Solms and Rohan Etsebeth run Fanakalo design agency in Stellenbosch. Faan Rabie is a videographer who likes setting drones loose over vineyards.
De Kleine Wijn Koöp - 'the little wine co-op' - is a collaboration between five young blokes from different corners of the industry, making fresh, of-the-moment, bona fide African wines from different corners of the Cape. They started selling (out of) their wines via Instagram and are gradually expanding the range. Pristine fruit, minimal intervention, minimal extraction, stunning labels and a massive amount of fun - but minute production.
