Fodor's Review

Since it started wine making in 1984, the Grier family has notched numerous successes. As John Platter, one of South Africa's foremost wine writers, says: "Other winemakers might jog or work out in the gym; Jeff Grier gets all the exercise he needs stepping up to the podium for wine industry awards." Try the Bush Vine Sauvignon Blanc, for which Grier was voted Winemaker of the Year in 1997, and you'll start to understand why it's become almost a cult wine. Then check out

the range of Méthode Cap Classique sparkling wines—the Tradition Rosé Brut, for instance, is a delicate pink bubbly with soft, creamy overtones.
