Let the grapes do the talking...

About Craven
Their story begins back in 2007 while both 'dragging hose' in Sonoma, California, for the harvest season. A chance meeting between an Aussie and a South African has eventually turned into Craven Wines. After both having taken to the text books at their respective universities, they decided to hit the road, see lots of things, work in lots of places and try and learn as much as possible from this massive wine world. Since meeting they have both been on a similar journey to try and find exactly what they wanted to do. Luckily enough, they had very similar ideas. So back in 2011 they moved to Stellenbosch, South Africa, a place that they both have an affinity for. The both feel Stellenbosch has such an amazing array of sites and terroir, and that it is perfect for what they want to do. Which is make site-specific, honest wines. Let the grapes do the talking....
Winemaking
In terms of 'winemaking' they like to keep things as simple as possible. To try and achieve the wines they want to make, they feel the best methods are being hands off, while being very hands on. In other words they pay serious attention to the wine but they do not manipulate the wine. We believe the best way to express site and fruit is to show just that. They do not use cultured yeasts, enzymes, fining agents, etc. throughout the winemaking process. They only use older oak and try their best to find larger format barrels. Essentially a minimal amount of SO2 (which is their friend) is the only thing added to their wines.
