About Raats Family Wines

Raats Family Wines was originally a partnership between brothers Bruwer and Jasper Raats and their father, vintner Jasper Raats Snr, who died in 2009. In 2009, cousin Gavin Bruwer Slabbert joined them as a winemaker and viticulturist. This collaboration proved highly successful for Raats Family Wines as a business.
Bruwer spent some time at the famous Blaauwklippen, Delaire and Zorgvliet estates before devoting himself entirely to the Raats label. With great personal dedication, he established Raats Family Wines as one of the leading wineries of the New World, regarded by many international critics as a benchmark.
Much of the work entailed procuring specific types of soil and old, unproductive vineyards in the area around Stellenbosch, Paarl, Durbanville Hills and Paardeberg. “The best winegrowing soil for Chenin blanc anywhere in the country is without doubt in and around Stellenbosch. Here, the average age of the vines is 25 years and they grow 250 m above sea level. It’s perfect.” All the grapes are hand-picked and the extensive expertise and attention to detail are poured into the wine produced. The result is a truly unique product: the flagship of South African wine and soil.
Bruwer makes annual trips to the USA and Europe, to visit the top restaurants and loyal customers. He firmly believes that personal relationships with the vendors of his wines are crucial. “Our wines should be enjoyed with a good meal by people who appreciate the passion and dedication that went into producing them.”
All of his efforts have ultimately paid off. Raats Family Wines are highly regarded in the UK, USA, Canada and Europe and consistently receive top ratings in international publications such as the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, Decanter, Wine & Spirits, Wine Spectator and Wine Advocate Magazine.
