Andre Adriaan Badenhorst's grandfather was the general manager at Groot Constantia wine estate for 46 years. His father was born there and farmed on neighboring Buitenverwachting and Constantia Uitsig for many years.  Adi grew up between the vineyards and spent his time picking (stealing) grapes. “It all started when Jean Daneel, then winemaker at Buitenverwachting, let me make my first wine when I was thirteen,” Adi recalls.

After completing his studies at Elsenburg, Adi worked a few harvests at Chateau Angelus, Alain Graillot in the north Rhone, France and Wither Hills in New Zealand and did stints at local cellars Simonsig, Steenberg, Groote Post and nine years as winemaker at the esteemed Stellenbosch estate, Rustenberg.

In 2008 he packed it all in and bought a 60-hectare piece of land in the Paardeberg with his cousin Hein. They now proudly farm together, practice biological farming and make natural wines in the traditional manner, vinifying in old foudres  and cement vats.

Now Adi Badenhorst has done it again… knocking it out the park with these game changing canned wines. The grapes for Curator are sourced from selected vineyards across the Coastal Region of South Africa’s wild west coast. The vineyards are mostly bush vines growing in granite and slate soils. There’s no fancy winemaking here, just good, honest, fruit driven wines from some of the Cape’s most exciting vineyard areas.

'This is fruit-driven and vinous with white blossom, fresh pear and peach; medium-bodied with a balanced mouth-watering acidity, stone fruit and baking spices. Just perfect for the park without being boring or simple.' Anja Breit, Philglas & Swiggot
