SOUTH AFRICA

Botanica

From one of the oldest continents in the world comes incredible new world wine.

South Africa, renowned for its varied topography, great natural beauty,  and cultural diversity is home to Ginny Povall’s Botanica. 

 

Originally a Boston native, Ginny followed her self-taught winemaking passion to Stellenbosch where she found a home on Protea Heights Farms. Planting her first 12 acres in 2009, Ginny now creates over 9 spectacular wines. 

 

Whether the collection of Mary Delany Chenin Blanc and Pinot Noir or her Big Flower Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc these wines  will delight, mirroring Ginny’s vibrant and charming personality in every glass. Her distinctly refined and lively wines awaken our palette, blending old and new world style in every sip.

 

Mary Delany Chenin Blanc is by far the best we’ve ever tasted and  the rest of the collection is exceptionally pretty.
