Time for Wine
The small winery, originally known as DuVon, stood as a testament to Armand and his uncle Alex's dedication and their connection to the land. Each grape that entered its doors symbolized history, a journey, and dreams.
In 2023, friends Armand du Toit and Izak de Vries, who shared a deep passion for wine and a connection to their upbringing, embarked on a remarkable journey. They chose to blend their love for wine with the unique qualities of hand-selected grapes grown on the two farms where they had grown up. This marked the beginning of their collaboration, with winemaker Izak de Vries joining DuVon. This partnership gave rise to DuVon and DeVries Vintners, intertwining expertise, passion, and a commitment to crafting excellent wines, marking a new and exciting chapter in their shared journey.
"Our philosophy is to create each wine from the best grapes on the most suitable 'terroir,' with minimum interference. I believe in soil, location, climate, and one human factor: management, but with a nature-driven mindset." - Izak de Vries
