Producer Profile

Wightman & Sons

Adorning the emblem of Wightman & Sons is a symbolic hand trowel, paying homage to Andrew Wightman's extensive background as a builder, while a bush vine signifies his latest endeavor: overseeing a 24-hectare farm named Môrelig in the Swartland region. This special terrain boasts a diverse array of seven organically farmed varietals, capturing the attention of esteemed winemakers within the Swartland community for its exceptional quality and distinct expression. While much of the farm's yield is eagerly sought after by renowned producers like Craig Hawkins, Eben Sadie, and Jurgen Gouws, Andrew, alongside his son Brandon, embarked on their winemaking journey with their debut label in 2015, producing a modest 900 cases annually.
