It's said that good old Branson named his company Virgin because he had no idea what he was doing; what with his previous foray into the business world being a failed attempt at growing and selling Christmas trees and budgerigars (timing of course was Branson’s downfall here given it was July and during the great budgerigar glut of 1961). Yet today his residency is Necker Island and his personal wealth is in the billions, quite the transition.

Similarly, the Fledge & Co was so named as this is Leon Coetzee & Margaux Nel’s fledgling wine company, starting in just 2007. They spent half a decade experimenting and tinkering with winemaking methods and vineyard plots to find the best system for each variety they grew. Today, along with numerous other lines in a fantastic range, they have a gloriously distinct Sauvignon with a bright palate of citrus, tropical fruit, blackcurrant leaf and a vibrant minerality. With wines like this, we fully expect Leon & Margaux to have a private Island in the British Virgins by the end of their career.
The first fluttering of what would later become Leon Coetzee & Margaux Nel fledgling wine & vine operation started in 2007 with a few experimental barrels put to one side in the cellar, what followed was almost a half-decade of trial and experiment with a mere 360 bottle release in 2012 under The Fledge & Co. After this they slowly expanded the range, now incorporating over 35 vineyards across 15 varieties & the entire length and breadth of the Cape. Their approach is very much "terroir by truck;" sourcing the very best fruit for each of their wines, working hand in hand with top notch farmers, harvesting every berry by hand & crafting the wines, utilizing traditional techniques in the family cellar. Each of the wines are hand crafted with care from start to finish and aim showcase the very best of the Cape's myriad of ancient soils, climates and dedicated folk who tend the vines.
