About the producer: Quickly opting to part ways from larger-scale production in 2010, MC realised his passion for natural winemaking and organic farming at Joostenberg Wines. From there, he continued to work with small producers, and later the independent winemakers in Swartland. In 2018, continuously drawn to a more ‘hands on’ approach, MC founded (ℓ) equinox wines. Working with grape growers from Swartland, (ℓ) equinox aims to create a liquid that is both balanced and natural.
