AA Badenhorst Family Wines
Andre Adriaan Badenhorst’s grandfather was the general manager at Groot Constantia for 46 years. His father was born there and farmed on neighboring Buitenverwachting and Constantia Uitsig for many years. Adi grew up between the vineyards and spent his time picking (stealing) grapes. “It all started when Jean Daneel, then winemaker at Buitenverwachting, let me make my first wine when I was thirteen,” Adi recalls. After completing his studies at Elsenburg, Adi worked a few harvests in France and New Zealand and did stints at local cellars Simonsig, Steenberg, Groote Post and nine years as winemaker at the esteemed Stellenbosch estate, Rustenberg.
In 2008 he packed it all in and bought a 60-hectare piece of land in the Paardeberg with his cousin Hein, who was also born and bred in the Constantia Valley. They now proudly farm together as owners of A.A. Badenhorst Family Wines where they practice biological farming and make natural wines in the traditional manner.

On Kalmoesfontein - which falls in the Swartland appellation, between Malmesbury and Wellington - it is back to basics, using traditional winemaking equipment and old cement kuipe. "We make wines with immense character. We're using what we can afford. We are making the best wines we can. And we are having great experiences. I want to make something, involving interaction from my family."

Today Adi Badenhorst is an award winning winemaker, member of the Cape Winemakers Guild, founding member of the Swartland Revolution and Swartland Independent, proud dad and ever evolving Vigneron.
