Duncan Savage matriculated at Rondebosch Boys High School in 1995. After a few years of much surfing and little studying, the wine bug bit and Duncan headed off to Elsenburg. Elsenburg was followed by 14 years at Cape Point Vineyards before Duncan started his own venture in 2016. Savage Wines was set up in the heart of Cape Town in Salt River.
Vineyards for his wines are leased and grapes sourced from around the Western Cape, maritime in nature where possible. Granitic soil is the focus.
