The image of the noble steed on the wine labels – and indeed the name itself – give something of a hint that Percheron is a winery that really values tradition. The Percheron is a French heavy horse breed that was widely used when many of the Western Cape’s vine-growing plots were first established, and it’s now seeing something of a resurgence as growers value the fact that their hooves are gentle on the soil and cause minimal disturbance to the vines.

The use of horses and traditional South African varieties pays homage to the area’s heritage, but Percheron’s wines are thoroughly contemporary, with stacks of character and flavour.
