About Grande Provence
The story of Grande Provence is steeped in folklore. The estate range, called Angels Tears, had been around for more than 10 years when the legend began that angels had descending onto the estate during harvest and while sipping the wine they cried tears of joy. Our original wine in the range is the semi-sweet, to which we have added three more wines to complete the series. It is fruity, light and pleasant – wines that taste best when shared with friends.
Our newly rebranded label incorporates elements of the estate; butterflies, cherry blossoms and one of our local squirrels from the big oak tree.
We have the first 100% Chenin Blanc/Muscat amphora wine which was nominated wine of the year by Tim James.
“I place the highest emphasis on viticulture and sustainable farming methods ensuring exceptional fruit with which to reflect South Africa’s world-class terroir in an elegant style of fruit expression and ageability.” – Matthew van Heerden
