“I threw the pearl of my soul into a cup of wine. I went down the primrose path to the sound of flutes. I lived on honeycomb.”
- Oscar Wilde
"Hogan Wines is a small, family-run business. After seven years of working with various wineries in the Cape and overseas, I now have the privilege of teaming up with my parents, Dunstan and Trish Hogan. We produce our wines in a cellar in the Banhoek Valley.
The grapes of our first vintage were harvested in 2014. Luckily for us, this was a great year for our decades’ old bush-vines grown in the hot, asperous Swartland."
Jocelyn Wilson returned to winemaking after a four-year hiatus with a bang. Her debut 2014 Chenin Blanc took Cape Wine 2015 by storm. For vintage 2015 she added a red blend, with an inclusion of Carignan, inspired by the late, great Serge Hochar (Chateau Musar). Jos has a total commitment to quality.
