“Great wine is one of life’s greatest pleasures, & we hope that you will enjoy our creations from our little piece of heaven on earth!”
- TOM & HAYLEY BREYTENBACH -
We believe that wine is made in the vineyard. At Brenaissance we focus all our energy & attention on growing the best fruit possible from our terroir. We are not winemakers & do not profess to be, that’s why we have hand selected well-known wineries from the Stellenbosch region to craft our wines with us.
Brenaissance consistently aims to achieve wines that are dark & deep in colour, fruity & intense in flavour, individual in character, smooth & well-balanced. We believe in specialisation & diversification. In selecting specific wineries to oversee the individual varietals, we have established a team of passionate specialists that we work side by side with a diverse & uniquely complete range of wines.
BRENAISSANCE WINE TASTING
We invite you to taste the fruits of our labour. During summer, we host our wine tastings out on the wine deck, in the middle of the plum orchard; while winter calls for a glass of red inside our cosy on-site restaurant, The Farmers Pantry.
