In 2018, Francois established the Bezuidenhout Family Wine portfolio from which he started the Leenders Wine brand to associate the Bezuidenhout family history and the wines’ ties to South African history.
Francois always dreamt of producing wines that are not from only one region, but rather showcases regionality from a variety of terroirs and regions.
Leenders is the first range of wines produced by Bezuidenhout Family Wines, doing just that.
Grapes are sourced from across the Cape Winelands and wines are made to be true to its origin. All three blends are Southern-Rhône-influenced, with a South African flair.
