The Wine

The Farm – Boschkloof

The 25 Hectare estate is situated 8km West of Stellenbosch in one of South Africa’s prime red wine producing regions.  The boutique wine estate yields some of the best quality grapes in the region and in South Africa.  With 29 accolades to date, Louis57 Wines offer an outstanding combination of character, nose and aging potential.

The Winemakers

Jacques Borman was the winemaker at the world famous La Motte Wine Estate in Franschhoek for 25 years, after which he developed the Rupert & Rothschild international wine label.  Today, Jacques and his son Reenen create world class wines on their private estate and it is widely recognised that they are making some of the most exciting wines in South Africa at the moment.  Reenen’s vision, personal involvement with the soil and hands on approach to viticulture produce timeless wines that have achieved award winning status in many categories since the range entered the market.

Sporting Connection

Named after his momentous achievement on the Mossel Bay Golf Course when Louis scored a 57 – the lowest ever score recorded on the course – each Louis57 Wine is an outstanding combination of exceptional quality and balance.

Louis Oosthuizen first ventured into the field of winemaking in 2012, lending his brand name, Louis57, to a handpicked range of locally produced wines – all of which Louis personally tasted and selected.

Each Louis57 wine is outstanding in terms of balance and quality, enabling it to delight even the most selective of wine connoisseurs.  Louis57 wines are produced under license by Boschkloof Wines in Stellenbosch, that is owned by master winemakers and father-son duo Jacques Borman and Reenen Borman.

The Winemaker Says

I have a passion for kids, golf and fine wine. Our partnership between The Sporting Wine Club and Louis 57 will touch all three of my passions – supporting golf days and charitable auctions, enjoying my Private Collection Louis 57 Wines and also supporting my Louis 57 Foundation (www.louis57foundation.com) through whom we touch many kids lives – The Leolan Academy, Ipapa57 - feeding the children, Kids with Cancer and Louis 57 Junior Golf Development.
