Producer Profile

The Three Foxes

The Three Foxes offer a collection of naturally crafted wines hailing from the Swartland region, situated north of Cape Town. Emphasizing Syrah and other Mediterranean grape varieties, we meticulously select grapes from the most captivating vineyards in the area. Each year, our quest leads us to discover unique parcels of extraordinary varietals, such as Sangiovese in 2008, Roussanne in 2009, and Mouvèdre in 2011, each contributing to the creation of a distinct second wine. Our winemaking philosophy revolves around natural fermentation, eschewing new wood, enzymes, filtration, and fining. The result is a collection of wines that authentically reflect the character of their vineyard origins.

Where The Wines Come From

Western Cape

Natural wine production in the Western Cape of South Africa embodies a movement towards authenticity and sustainability within the region's esteemed wine industry. Embracing the rich tapestry of terroir offered by the Western Cape's diverse landscapes, natural winemakers prioritize minimal intervention in both vineyard and cellar practices. Indigenous grape varieties like Chenin Blanc and Pinotage thrive alongside international cultivars, reflecting the region's spirit of experimentation and innovation. With a commitment to organic or biodynamic farming methods and native yeast fermentation, these wines express a purity of flavor and sense of place. Vibrant acidity, nuanced aromatics, and a distinctive minerality characterize the tasting experience, while food pairing opportunities abound, from fresh seafood to hearty stews. In the glass, Western Cape natural wines offer a true reflection of the land and a testament to the artistry of low-intervention winemaking.
