Their wild-fermented natural wines are esoteric, unconventional, low in sulphur and are some of the most exciting wines on the planet. Strangely, they are often refused export certification for their lack of typicity, but what this really means is that Testalonga’s wines just aren’t like everybody elses.

Testalonga was set up by Craig and Carla Hawkins in 2008 and they were the first of the Swartland Revolution crew to start their own vineyard project back in 2015, when they moved to a farm called Banditskloof. With the sole aim to make wines from grapes and nothing else, they farm organically and/or biodynamically.
