Welcome to Sauvignon Wines and thanks for taking the time to find out more about our wonderful Sauvignons.

The home of is the beautiful Diemersdal Wine Estate, nestled in the Durbanville Wine Valley, just 25 km outside Cape Town. The Louw family has been custodians of this stunning place for the last 6 generations.

“Did you know that white wine grape variety Sauvignon Blanc and red Cabernet Sauvignon grape are related? Cabernet Sauvignon is a cross of Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Franc.”

It’s All About Good Wine is the brainchild of Thys Louw, one of the driving forces of the ‘new generation’ of South African winemakers. He is passionate about Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Sauvignon and developed a brand that ‘owns the grape varieties’ by combining it with the website. Sauvignon Wines are made in the beautiful Western Cape of South Africa, where the Atlantic and the Indian Ocean meet.

Thys joined the farm in 2005 and since then has taken his passion, namely Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Sauvignon to greater heights, producing numerous award winning wines

Quite simply, I’m passionate about Sauvignon. So I bought the .com! And all I want to do is make great Sauvignons — Thys Louw – winemaker
