Tremayne Smith grew up in East London and studied to be a chef. Influenced by his father's love of wine, he then decided to take up a career in winemaking. After his studies, he was became the assistant winemaker and vineyard manager for Sijnn followed by Mullineux and now is the winemaker at Fable. In 2014 Tremayne started his own project. What inspired The Blacksmith was working with cultivars such as Cinsault, Carignan and Grenache, both locally and during his travels abroad. The Blacksmith's philosophy is to make natural wines that are both appealing and soul-satisfying. Tremagne has a profound understanding of where the limits are in producing natural wines. They beat a drum of deliciousness with bracing minerality (also in the reds) and push the boundary of low alcohol wine in South Africa's more than warm mediterranean-like climate. Quantities are limited and have found their way into some of the very best wine bars and restaurants.
