The Seven Sisters wine brand evolved from its association with the seven Brutus sisters of Paternoster. The Brutus family lived in a small fishing village on the western coast. Their quaint cottage overlooked the untamed waters of the Atlantic Ocean. Circumstances saw the sisters leave the tranquillity of their homeland.
Twenty years later, they came together to create fine wines.
The wines are made simply so that each wine really reflects the character of the grape and terroir offering a very elegant and honest wine. They are carefully selected to match the unique styles and personalities of each sister, celebrate their bond and devotion to one another, a fitting tribute to sisterhood indeed! These are wines with huge character and personality, which we are sure they have absorbed from the family that make them.
The climatic influences that contribute to the characteristics of the Seven Sisters wines are the warm, low humid summer with temperatures ranging between 25 and 35 degree Celsius. With annual winter rainfall of approximately 450mm to 600mm and soil type varies from Hutton, Clovelly, Sandy Fernwood and Kroonstad, but the predominant soil type is Malmesbury Shale, with patches of Granite and Table Mountain Sandstone. The gravel under structure allows the soil to retain moisture during hot dry summers without requiring formal irrigation structures.
