The winemakers happened to both have an extremely rich historical connection and studied together by complete coincidence. We then created this label for them that already has 2 cultivars.
The blurb on the back-label explains everything as follow:
Once they were bitter enemies at war, the Anglo-Boer War.
The one was a Boer, the president of his country. The other a Brit, a famous general who led the relief of Kimberely.
President Kruger and Field Marshal Frenchâ€¦ they died as enemies.
Now, more than a hundred years later, two direct descendants have joined forces. Stefan Gerber a great, great grandson of Paul Kruger and Alexander Milner a great, great grandson of John French Milner have, together, created Boer & Brit, wines so intense and genuine as the battle their ancestors fought long ago.
Rockspider and Rooinekâ€¦ unbelievable, but true. Enjoy their wine!
With the body of a Boer and the nose of an Englishman â€“ you canâ€™t go wrong.
