The Cape's Leading Specialist in Rhone Varieties
Chris Williams is the genius behind The Foundry, which was originally conceived in the early 2000s when Chris was head winemaker at Meerlust. Since 2019 Chris has resigned from day job and has totally dedicated himself to his own project, in collaboration with his silent business partner James Reid. Chris specialises in Rhone varieties and he is making a great name for himself: his 2015 Grenache Blanc was made White Wine of the Year in the John Platter Guide, and has countless other accolades. Chris has a knack at turning out outstanding, category-defining wines, which to be honest, are absolute superb value for money when you consider the small scale and artisan approach that he takes. The wines come and go and we rarely have his full range in stock at any one time, and this is one of the few places you can buy with confidence right across the range and in any vintage.
