Leeuwekuil Family Vineyards

Leeuwenkuil, which roughly translates as “Lion’s Den”, was given its alluring name as a tribute to the ferocious Cape Lion that used to roam the farmland hunting unsuspecting cattle. Watering holes along what is today known as the Mosselbank River and the Hans Lourens River were frequented by these lions, who posed a great threat to local cattle farmers. Luckily for the Dreyer family, Leeuwenkuil’s land was perfectly suited for growing vineyards. Willie and Emma Dreyer are the proud owners of Leeuwenkuil Family Vineyards. Their story set off when they met at the age of 16 and together they have built Leeuwenkuil into the successful winery it is today.

Tasting Notes

White ginger flower, ripe tropical fruit, hints of vanilla. Good acidity helps the lingering mineral aftertaste.

Food Matches

An ideal accompaniment to red mullet
