Talking with Bruwer Raats, winemaker in South Africa

by L.M. Archer

The ghost of Gaston Huet looms large in the life of Bruwer Raats (pronounced brew-vay rahts) of Raats Family Wines in Stellenbosch, South Africa.

Huet, an unbreakable French vigneron, survived a World War II Nazi concentration camp, then walked three days non-stop after release to make harvest at his Loire Valley domaine. Raats draws upon Huet’s inspiration daily as partner, along with brother Jasper and cousin Gavin, in his family’s Stellenbosch wine estate. Read more here.
