Man Vintners

"It all started as a simple plan: to make a wine that we'd love to buy. We wanted quality wine that offered excellent value and great packaging. Not exactly an epiphany, perhaps, but enough to motivate us into action. Of course, first we had to come up with a name. To keep peace in the families, we took our wives' initials (we each have one wife) -- that is how we explained to Marie, Anette and Nicky that we were going to be "busy" most weekends. 'It's for you!' we told them. And mostly it's true."
José Conde and brothers Tyrrel and Philip Myburgh started making wine together in 2001. They're further supported by a group of dedicated grape growers from the Agter-Paarl region. From the first 300 cases made in a tractor shed, MAN Family Wines has grown to producing over 175,000 cases per year and exporting to 25 countries.

Man Vintners Merlot 1.5L
Wine Advocate 89 “The 2015 Jan Fiskaal Merlot is a commendable take on the variety that does not thrive in South Africa. It has as well- defined bouquet, the American oak judiciously used (not to other winemakers) and allowing the fruit to shine through. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp red

MAN Vintners Sauvignon Blanc 2016

"Fans of our Sauvignon Blanc regularly mention the lively bouquet and tropical fruit notes, which really make the wine stand apart from its often too green and grassy peers. All you need is a summer's afternoon and you're set. If you're peckish, try sushi, salads or fish dishes alongside a chilled

Wine Advocate 90 "The 2014 Free-Run Steen Chenin Blanc has a focused, clinical bouquet with pineapple and lemon zest, hints of passion fruit developing just behind. The palate is very well balanced with a fine line of acidity: plenty of tropical fruit on display here but neatly delineated on the

" Chenin Blanc thrives in the Mediterranean climate, deep soils and bush-vine vineyards of our region. We use only the free-run juice (no pressing of the grapes) to preserve its clean and natural character, refreshing acidity and delicious ripe fruit flavours. A versatile option for almost any dish
