A STORY OF SOIL AND SOUL
In McLaren Vale, South Australia, the Bekkers story is born of a rare connection with nature and a world of experience.
We have been fortunate to encounter some of the best the wine world has to offer, but nothing has diminished our conviction that McLaren Vale can deliver world class wines. We aim to be an emblem for the region.
Our wines are gently crafted in tiny quantities, with an accent on finesse and fine texture. We strive to inspire confidence and push the limits of what’s possible for McLaren Vale and Australian wine.
Available at just a handful of Australia’s premier restaurants and wine merchants, the majority of our production is reserved for our allocation list.
Our wines are created for people who desire products with a soul and as a small family wine company, we aspire to stand proud amid the world’s most coveted wines and their craftsmen.
This is a story of special wine……from the soil to the soul.
Toby & Emmanuelle Bekkers.
In the beginning, one of McLaren Vale’s oldest wineries was the setting for a chance meeting between a young French winemaker and newly graduated Australian viticulturist.
Emmanuelle and Toby Bekkers have lived, worked and raised a family amongst the vineyards of McLaren Vale, South Australia.
A FAMILY AFFAIR
With their young family, Emmanuelle and Toby travel regularly to Europe and visit an extensive network of esteemed wine makers and friends. After each trip they return with new inspirations and an appreciation of timeless, traditional methods.
This serves to enhance a rare and special commitment to producing McLaren Vale wines of the highest quality.
The Bekkers winemaking story starts with exceptional attention to detail in the vineyard. It is a showcase for Toby’s viticultural abilities and a philosophy of farming which views the vineyard through a prism of ecology, not chemistry.
This philosophy extends equally to the cellar where Emmanuelle’s precision is the perfect foil to Toby’s unfettered, open-minded approach to winemaking.
Patience and gentle practices bring to life wines that not only possess the generosity for which McLaren Vale is renowned, but more importantly refined texture, fragrance and a sense of restraint.
McLaren Vale dominates the label in deference to the importance of provenance and our faith in the region.
We intend for our wines to partner good food and to be shared with fine company.
Most importantly, we hope that they serve to enhance some of the most significant moments in the lives of our customers.
We encourage you to contact us for any further information about BEKKERS or to organise a visit.
