Thorne and Daughters Wines was started in 2012 by John and Tasha Seccombe to produce authentic wines in the beautiful Western Cape where we have made our home. It has been a long journey that has taken us around the world and brought us back here to where we first met. We are in love with the Cape, and we want to taste this air and this sunshine in our wines.
To produce our wines we’ve drawn on the great history of wine growing here in the Cape, putting together old vineyard parcels with new grape varieties, and making wines with old school simplicity and a modern ‘edge’. Our approach to wine making is simple, honest and gentle, and we are looking to make wines that tell a story, not wines that shout and bang a drum.
We spend a lot of time cooking and talking about wine, food, photography, building, and gardening. Our home and family are so important to us and they are constant sources of energy and inspiration that we take into the world. We are ridiculously passionate about what we do, and are so grateful to be able to make these wines and share our ideas.
