Deux Frères was founded in 2008, when brothers Retief and Stephan du Toit decided to continue the heritage as a “wine family” left to them by their mother and stepfather, Hester and Marc Wiehe. They bequeathed us the foundation on which Deux Frères is built.

It is the philosophy of Deux Frères that nature and geography, or the terroir, make the wine. This process culminates in the cellar where a policy of minimum intervention is followed. It is in the light of this that Stephan rather describes himself more as a traditional vigneron, driven by taste and intuition, than a modern winemaker with all the exactness that that entail.

When you taste a Deux Frères wine you can taste the sun and the soil. It is an expression of our love for our small piece of heaven.

Deux Frères is situated on the bank of a natural dry run/wetland on the westerly slope of the Simonsberg Mountain.

There is an old saying that the wines from the lower part of a slope, which has the heaviest soils and suffers most from a lack of drainage, are for the monks. Wines from the top part of the slope, which has the least rain but where the sun does not have a solar-panel like focus, are for the cardinals. But, the wine made from the middle “thermal belt” of a slope, which has perfect sun orientation and where rain runs off, is the wine of the pope.
