Gus hated school. Forced to learn parrot fashion, punished when he didn't. And each kid categorised. 'You're a numbers child.' 'You do language.' 'You play tennis.' Not that he was stupid. He just didn't want to learn that way. He believed it more important to be enthused, and given the ability to find things out for himself.


So! As a winemaker, he put this into practice. Instead of pushing each variety to be one thing, he brought them together. That way, one informed the other. The fresh, floral approachability of Chenin; the elegant substance of Chardonnay. Together more than capable of challenging top white Burgundy that sells at twice the price! What's more, to ensure the wine turned out bright and well-balanced, he makes only 3,000 bottles every year.


Paul Roos is a 5th generation farm that was converted to vineyards approximately 30 years ago. Originally, the grapes were sold to other producers but 2013 saw the decision to create their own brand, with the first vintage being released in 2014. Paul Roos exclusively make two wines, Die Skoolhoof and Die Filantroop, with a maximum of 3,000 bottles of each wine produced per year.
