About Thorne & Daughters
Thorne & Daughters winery is a family-owned vineyard situated in the heart of South Africa's renowned Western Cape. Established by John and Tasha Seccombe in 2012, it’s a testament to their refined palates and vast expertise in the wine making industry.
The couple's irresistible passion for wine is reflected in every bottle they carefully curate, with each variety exhibiting a distinct, individual personality. Favouring a handcrafted approach to wine production, the Seccombes skillfully blend traditional winemaking techniques with modern artistry. As a result, they have succeeded in producing a range of seasonally-influenced wines that are dynamic, balanced and utterly enjoyable.
Against the backdrop of stunning mountain scenery, the fertile slopes of the Seccombe’s vineyards are perfect for producing grapes of exceptional quality. The vineyard’s untamed surroundings also play a major role in inspiring the creation of their standout wines. Thorne & Daughters’ small-scale production emphasises quality over quantity; a rarity in today's fast-paced commercial industry.
The highlight of Thorne & Daughters’ array is undoubtedly the Rocking Horse Cape White, an exclusive blend that has garnered international acclaim. Made from a combination of Roussanne, Chardonnay, Semillon, and Chenin Blanc grapes, the wine is known for its rich fruity flavours and underlying minerality. Just like the Seccombes, this delectable wine tells a compelling story that captures the essence of the South African landscape.
