OUR PORTFOLIO OF WINES
Owner Ernst Bruwer is the 6th generation Bruwer on the farm. He took over from his Grandfather Ernst Bruwer Snr. Ernst studied Viticulture and Enology at Stellenbosch University and he is intensely involved in all aspects of the farm.
Ernst is enthusiastic and always eager to improve. He believes in sustainable farming and that older vineyards should be cared for. Our winemaking team consists of Cellarmaster John Raymond Kirby, who has been working at Mont Blois since 1984, and Nina-Mari Bruwer. Nina-Mari and Ernst met whilst studying Viticulture & Enology together at Stellenbosch University. Nina-Mari joined the Mont Blois team in 2008. In 2014 Nina-Mari was awarded with the prestigious title of Cape Wine Master. The husband and wife team are involved with all aspects of the farm and winery and manage it hands-on. Exciting things are still on the horizon so #watchthisspace.
