Elgin \\ South Africa
Winemaker Callan Williams hails from Zimbabwe and set out to become a professional ballet dancer but made a handbrake turn and switched to study viticulture & oenology at Elsenburg agricultural college.
Following stints at Villiera in Stellenbosch, then Iona in the Elgin Valley, Callan now runs her own boutique operation out of rented cellar space near Somerset West.
These are the maiden releases of two wines made from Callan’s favourite grapes, Semillon and Cabernet Franc. Striking packaging won them the People’s Choice award at the 2017 Wine Label Design Awards; the contents will blow you away.
