Hugo Truter came into the wine business in 1996 with a Bachelors in Oenology, big plans for the future and lots of enthusiasm. His harvest in France and South Africa earned him titles such as SA Young Wine of the Year 2007, along with multiple Veritas Medals and a top ten Pinotage medal. His wife Celeste completed the same education and also officially started in winery since 1996. Celeste focusses on ethical wine trade and sustainable wine production and implements this where possible.
Agaat would be the Truter Family Wines’ showpony. A name they stumbled upon while searching for the perfect name for their ‘baby’, but it turned out Celeste was expecting twin boys. A beautiful backstory for a beautiful wine.
