About us

Owners and visionaries, Thian and Elmarie, share an unfaltering passion and love for quality red wine. Thian, a helicopter pilot and business enthusiast, alongside Elmarie, entrepreneur, food stylist and soon-to-be author of her own recipe book, knew they wanted to create a wine that showcased quality wine from the iconic Stellenbosch region.

In 2017, the lifetime long dream finally became a reality. To create a wine that represented not only the best of ourselves and our family, but that of the Stellenbosch Wine Route. Our passion for quality red wine led us to this moment, to Berry Wines.

We journey across the Stellenbosch region to source only the best grapes, and through minimal manipulation transform the humble fruit into a fantastic wine with noticeable characteristics and flavours. As the saying goes, “a winemaker cannot make a good wine from a bad grape.” Our two flagship wines “Three Gen”, a full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon and “The Kayla”, a 100% Cabernet Franc pay homage to that.

Both wines pay tribute to our family.

Our wines represent the change of life and its many surprises. The unexpected is the label that will bring the surprise every year, because every year it can and will be different. As a family, we have learnt to embrace the unexpected and grow through every season of change.

We hope you will love our wines as much as we do. It is our passion in a bottle.

Cheers!
Thian & Elmarie Berry
