Spioenkop Wines

Nestled in the beautiful Elgin Valley, Spioenkop produces wines that are low intervention and focused on the expression of terroir. Originally from Belgium, Koen is a sommelier and engineer by training. He established Spioenkop in 2008 from his vision of creating wines from vines in rude health, dry farmed and untrammelled by artificial fertilizer, pesticides and herbicides; where working on foot and by hand are the order of the day. He is obsessive about the relationship of his vines with the environment and the work that he has done and continues to do to get the best from them.
