The Fledge Story
Being serious about having fun with wine is what makes The Fledge & Co stand out as honest and “down-to-earth”. Wine due Margaux Nel and Leon Coetzee is passionate about bottling enjoyable wines from unique vineyard sites stretching from the Outeniqua mountains to Calitzdorp and across the Western Cape. The wines are handcrafted and guided by the vines and soils of the vineyards from which they harvest and handled with care in the cellar. Working with 21 vineyards, 17 grape varieties and traveling about 18 500km during harvest does proof to have diverse and unique end-products. Their classic range is true to this terroir discovery and unapologetic wines, showcasing uniqueness and some unusual grape varieties. Leon and Margaux also puts their hands to the test with experimental barrels called Jikken Bareru (Japanese for “Experimental Barrel”) - a way of enabling them to have some fun and experiment more.
