Description

Intellego is a natural wine producer, focused on the contributions of the terroir, the old vines and that which the earth provides. Jurgen (winemaker) believes that the vineyards have their own energy, which determines each of the elements of the final product. His philosophy is to interfere with that energy as little as possible and allow it to shine through in the wine. The Intellego Chenin Blanc is the very first wine that was made under the Intellego label and these grapes are from a vineyard in the South of the Swartland. The label is a picture Jurgen took of an abandoned workers house next to the vineyard. These workers contribute massively to the vineyards and work been done there.
