In 2008, after many years making wine all over the globe Craig and Carla Hawkins started Testalonga in Swartland, South Africa. Their first wine was a skin contact Chenin and from there they have introduced new vineyards of mostly old vines of Grenache, Muscat, Carignan, Harslevelu and Syrah. All of the fruit comes from dry farmed, organic sites. The wines are made with as little manipulation as possible - in good years its as simple as picking, pressing, waiting, watching and bottling with nothing added at any stage.
