The Drift Estate in rural Overberg is the base for Bruce Jack Wines; a winemaker-driven family business. After completing a Political Science and English degree at the University of Cape Town, and then a Masters of Literature at St Andrews University in Scotland, Bruce studied winemaking at Roseworthy in Australia – the first South African to do this —before working vintages here, there and everywhere. Eventually he came back to South Africa ready to do his own thing.
These Bruce Jack Wines are all about pushing the experimental boundaries of winemaking with cutting edge and ancient winemaking and specially selected vineyards, managed to their exacting specifications. All wines are made at the Estate Cellar. Grapes were sourced from vineyards in Wildepaardekloof – Ashton, the Drift Estate and Hemel-en-Aarde. All grapes are low yields, sustainably farmed and hand picked.
