Stoumann’s Winery nestles in the heart of the fertile Olifants River Valley of the Western Cape. They strive to produce quality wines in small quantities. Unique cultivation methods in the vineyards ensure top quality grapes to the cellar.
A small oak barrel is the key to the maturation of Stoumann’s Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Vin de la Tortue wines.
In cooperation with Nature Conservation, the family is dedicated to the protection and resettlement of the endangered geometric tortoise of Namaqualand, the “suurpootjie”. It follows that the emblem on their labels and corks would represent the tortoise.
Just as the tortoise is known for its gradual progress and adaptation (after all, they outlived the Dinosaur!), the Stoumann’s flagship, Vin de la Tortue, is produced by following the same production methods which have withstood the test of time.
