Hennie du Preez Jnr has been steadily improving the standards on this family farm near Rawsonville since he took charge of the cellar in 1995. His unassuming goal: ‘To produce consistent value-for-money wines. I’d like to see our wines in every home!’ Polla Red – a happy accident blended when he had to fill up a tank in a hurry – has grown tenfold to meet demand.
