In 2006, the first vineyards of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet France, and Petit Verdot
In 2006, the first vineyards of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet France, and Petit Verdot were planted following a careful study of the terrain and the terroir of the region. As early as 2010 the vines started to bear fruit which was hand-harvested to avoid the grapes becoming damaged and manually sorted to make sure that only the best berries are used in the winemaking process. The wines are then made using classic winemaking methods using mostly manual labor– the key to creating exceptional quality wine.
The winery produces approximately 300,000 bottles per annum
Every year 400 thousand litres of wine are produced which results in approximately 300 thousand bottles of wine which are fermented in vats allowing for the process to be carefully controlled.
The Four Friends winery is the perfect location to witness where modern equipment and technology meet European quality standards and traditions in the processing of red and white grapes into wine.
