GREG SHERWOOD, MASTER OF WINE
The terroir of the Paarl wine valley opens up a world of possibility through its unique combination of character and elegance. UK-born proprietor, Tim Rudd, and his family saw immense potential in what was once overgrown and underutilised land. Here, Tim founded Brookdale Estate with a clear vision in mind – to create a world-class country estate in Paarl that produces fine wine blends using unusual varietals for South Africa
… a place where old-world sophistication and new world bravery collide.
I have set out to create a playground for the curious and a space for experimentation. Our varietals are unusual, our location is outside of the well-known, and our approach is rather unconventional. Brookdale’s wines will be a product of passion, of thought, of the freedom to be creative and of remarkable attention to detail and quality. I couldn’t be more excited.
I am one of just a handful of female winemakers in South Africa, and I couldn’t imagine doing anything else. If I could, I would have roots and grow along the vines. I am here to set an example of the magic that happens when you have passion, are true to yourself, explore your boundaries and push the limits. I am here to disrupt and innovate, and create exceptional wines while I do it.
