The foundation of our wines is built on French varietals such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Muscat. But we have also planted other varieties such as Riesling, Malbec, Pinot Noir and many more.
By 2024, we have planned to replace some of the existing vines and also add a few more varieties to our humble collection.
