Top international golfer and Major Winner of the 2010 Open Championship at St Andrews, Louis Oosthuizen, first ventured into the field of winemaking in 2012, lending his brand name, Louis57, to a handpicked range of locally produced wines – all of which are favourites of Louis himself.
Named after his momentous achievement on the Mossel Bay Golf Course when Louis scored a 57 – the lowest ever score recorded on the course – each Louis57 Wine is an outstanding combination of exceptional quality and balance.
A delight for even the most selective of wine connoisseurs.
Louis57 wines are made by the father and son combination, the renowned Borman family, namely Jacques Borman and his son, Reenen. This 25-hectare winemaking estate yields some of the best quality grapes – and therefore wine – in the region and in South Africa.
Louis has personally tasted and selected these superb wines from the Private Wine Estate in Stellenbosch. Jacques Borman was the wine maker at the world-famous estate, La Motte in Franschhoek for 25years, after which, he developed the Rupert & Rothschild international wine label.
Reenen joined his dad to venture into making world-class wines on their own private winemaking estate. This winemaker from Boschkloof shot the lights out last year with his 98-pointer Boschkloof Epiloque and it is believed that he is making some of the most exciting wines in South Africa at the moment. Reenen's vision, combined with grapes sourced from unique vineyards, results in wines of great authenticity that reverberate with a sense of place.
This personal involvement with the soil and hands-on approach to viticulture produce timeless wines. Enjoy these special wines from one of South Africa's leading family-owned estates, with the endorsement of one of the world's leading golfers.
