There is no recipe for Nativo blends…
At The Hughes Family Wines, we make only two wines per vintage, a Red Blend and a White Blend.
The Organic Movement is the base of our system …
In our vineyard we use our Trilogy approach to farming, where we overlap three recognized philosophies to obtain a balanced approach.
We have built and underground cellar using used shipping containers, natural stones and other materials from our area.
Our soils are red and high in clay content. This produces wines that are dark, dense and masculine. Our mission in life is to tame them a bit a give them more subtle and feminine tones. We achieve this by using whole bunch fermentation, harvesting early and breaking the skins as little as possible.
The Billy Hughes shortlist
We deliver anywhere in South Africa.
Please note that Nativo wines are sold in cases of 6 or 12, and no partial cases are available. For orders over 60 bottles, international orders, or special requests, please contact email@example.com.
Red Blend 2014
Dry land farming and a natural approach to viticulture brings forth aromas of dark berries and mineral overtones. Warm mouth feel and silky finish on ripe tannins.
White Blend 2015
This elegant Swartland white blend is naturally made. Barrel fermented with subtle aromas of apricots, lime, pineapple and creamy nuances. Fresh, yet bold with lingering minerality.
