Villion Family Wines focus on the production of premium wines. This means that vineyards are selected for specific contributions to create wines of International distinction. Selection criteria include age of the vineyards, sustainable and nature friendly production methods, limited yields, high altitude sites, clone differences and close proximity to the ocean. Villion Family Wines does not limit itself to use fruit only from a specific ward, but actually use the strengths of fruit from different wards, in creating unique styles of wine.
Botriver is a ward in the Walker Bay district, located between Elgin and Hermanus. It is the beginning of the valley and is famous for its relatively cool climate, due to its location near the ocean. This produces wines with nice fresh acids, including the grapes Chenin Blanc and Chardonnay. The weathered slate soils also contribute to the success of these cool-climate style wines.
