Opening in December 2018, the Old Road Wine Company is a blossoming wine brand. Yet while the tasting room and restaurant may be recent developments, the wines have been a long time in the making, with the project being the brainchild of a group of investors led by Tim Hutchinson.
With Chief Winemaker Ryan Puttick steering the winemaking way, the Old Road Wine Co. is comprised of 13 different wines across 5 exciting ranges. Each of which pays homage to the Franschhoek Valley’s heritage of prized old vines and fascinating, unique stories.
Wine of Origin:
The Juliette is made from 100% Sauvignon Blanc and has her roots in the shale soils of the stunning Highfield farm in Elgin, in a vineyard farmed for premium wine. This includes intensive shoot thinning and leaf removal after berry set to allow optimum tropical flavours to develop in the fruit. Grapes were harvested in the cool early morning hours and sorted at cellar.
