Estate motto

Strength in unity.

Meet the Winemaker

Winemaker Marthinus Rademeyer first became truly serious about the art of winemaking after tasting Ferrari Carano Blanc Fume 2007.

Today, he is known for creating experimental wines while staying within a set of boundaries, while searching for the perfect combination of balance, structure, and complexity.

Marthinus loves the action of blending his wines. “I enjoy having various components to experiment with while creating the perfect wine.”

About the Winery

Established as a co-op in 1950, Bonnievale Wines has become synonymous with the quaint little town that it was named for.

Head winemaker Marthinus Rademeyer works closely with fellow winemakers Jean Slabbert and Edwin Mathambo – a true manifestation of the winery’s slogan, “strength in unity”.

Together, they produce wines that are balanced, complex and intense, seamlessly reflecting the diversity of the region’s vineyards and terroir.
