Badenhorst Family Wines

AA Badenhorst Family Wines are grown, made and matured on Kalmoesfontein farm in the Swartland appellation of South Africa. The 28ha of old bushvines grow in the Siebritskloof part of the Paardeberg mountain.

The property is owned by the dynamic and good looking cousins Hein and Adi Badenhorst. They are originally from Constantia. Their grandfather was the farm manager of Groot Constantia for 46 years. Their fathers were born there and farmed together in Constantia, during the days when people still ate fresh vegetables and Hanepoot grapes, drank Cinsault and there were a lot less traffic lights and hippies still had a presence. Together these two have restored a neglected cellar on the farm that was last used in the 1930′s to make natural wines in the traditional manner.

  • The status of South African wine in the USA is lamentable. Even in New York City, where the most diverse selection of wine styles and origins in the world spoils imbibers, South Africa barely appears on the radar screen. The US has no heritage links to the Cape, and much of what has come ashore here in the 20 years since the end of apartheid has...

  • Badenhorst Secateurs Red Blend 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Tight and focused on the nose with a smoky top note and lots of sour red fruits framed with hints of sweet green spices and perhaps a hint of banana and band aid on the nose. With a very attractive blend of lightness and richness on the palate, this delivers a lovely textured wine, supported by integrated acids and rounded soft tannins. the frui... Read More

  • Aa Badenhorst Secateur Chenin Blanc 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Adi Badenhorst, the winemaker, is a bit nuts and he plays it up. A founding member of the Swartland Independent Revolution, he is easily recognized at any formal South African wine event for his wild beard and bright eyes. He says the wine makes itself because he is lazy - I'd like to call Bull**** on that one. He knows exactly what he is doing ... Read More
