Kruger Family Wines
Johan Kruger is a very passionate and knowledgeable winemaker. In 2005 he won the Young South African Winemaker of the Year award and received five stars in the leading Platter wine guide.
In Stellenbosch he caused a furore at his father's wine estate, Sterhuis, but due to the necessary disagreement, Johan decided to start his own business. He had long been impressed by the emerging cool climate regions of the Western Cape in South Africa and had many friends here who wanted to help him. That's how Johan started the crazy project 'Kruger Family Wines', in which he locates very high-quality vineyards in the cool climate zones and (if necessary) lets the farmers work the land according to his philosophy and then buy the grapes from them.
Johan's wines are all about flexibility, elegance and balance.
