Pierre Jourdan

Pierre Jourdan finds its home at Haute Cabrière estate. Following French tradition, this Cap Classique range is named after the original French Huguenot founder, Pierre Jourdan. The fundamental wine growing philosophy of “sun, soil, vine, man” still revolves around the perfect harmony of nature’s elements coming together to create magic with man playing only the role of a respectful conductor in creating a sum that’s bigger than its parts.
