Named after South Africa's most iconic bay, which frames the country's premium Winelands, False Bay Vineyards was born out of the desire to make "real " wine affordable.

False Bay Vineyards is the second wine project of Paul Boutinot, first being biodynamic Waterkloof Vineyards in Stellenbosch. Paul came to The Western Cape in 1994 with the desire to source and produce quality wine. He did by seeking out and rescue grapes from old, balanced, and under-appreciated vineyards otherwise destined to be lost in large co-operative blends. He transformed these gems with minimal intervention into sustainable wines.

The main goal was to provide the market with affordable wines in the price segment of big cooperatives, yet delivering much more. The increment in value comes from selected old, balanced vineyards in optimal locations. Basically a higher quality of fruit, processed in a different way: wild yeast, minimal intervention, and gentle handling of grapes.

Today the simple recipe remains the same: fantastic coastal fruit, naturally balanced grapes, and wild yeast ferments with additions avoided. Coupled with an expressive and well-thought message on the packaging it attained a large acceptance among wine lovers.
