Set in the heart of the mountain-ringed Robertson Valley in South Africa's Western Cape Province, Springfield Estate is a vibrant, family-run wine farm. It is owned by the Bruwer family, fourth-generation wine farmers and ninth-generation descendants of the Brueres, French Huguenots who came to South Africa from the Loire in 1688 with bundles of vines under their arms. The present owners of Springfield, brother-and-sister team Abrie and Jeanette Bruwer, are just as dynamic and enthusiastic as their ancestors and are prepared to take risks to do what they love best - making wine. Assisted by a team of dedicated workers, many of whom have been with the Bruwers for decades, winemaker and viticulturist Abrie keeps a watchful eye on the vineyards and the wines. Jeanette co-ordinates the marketing of estate wines, and spends a great deal of time travelling to promote Springfield both locally and abroad.
