Catherine Marshall Wines

"When we started on our wine journey from humble origins in 1997, we have always held the view that our intention was to produce a range of unique wines of excellence and, above all, to have fun doing it. As custodians of such an ancient craft, a balanced, holistic, creative and respectful approach reflects harmony and character in our wines."

What began as a festive three barrel foot stomp event attended by a handful of friends on a south peninsula beach in 1996, produced a very palatable Syrah, and saw the founding in 1997 of the first true micro-winery in the Western Cape with Pinot Noir the main focus.

The aptly named Barefoot Winery trading as Catherine Marshall Wines has long outgrown its humble origins to become a legendary institution and export to a number of markets worldwide.

About Catherine Marshall

Catherine graduated from Elsenburg in 1991. Apprenticeships at various local cellars interspersed with international experiences in France (Burgundy and St-Emilion- Bordeaux), USA ( California and Oregon) and Australia.

Resident winemaking positions followed at four wineries in Stellenbosch and Paarl before embarking on a solo career in 2007 establishing and running the wine business. At this time, she was instrumental in formalising the Garagiste Movement which has gone on to become very successful in South Africa. Although she no longer actively participates, she has been inducted as an honorary member.

As Cellar master at various wineries, she has garnered many local and international awards, including 5 star Platter Wine Guide and Tim Atkin (MW) accolades for her Pinot Noir. The total commitment to detail and the hands-on approach in vineyards and wine production are evident in the unique character of Cathy’s range.

In addition to a full wine schedule, Cathy enjoys mountain hiking ( Base camp Everest in Tibet and the Annapurna in Nepal being some of her highlights), mountain biking, gardening with herbs and fynbos, exotic travel, tennis and entertaining friends and family.

The estate consists of 14 hectares of vines within 31 lieu-dits of Pinot Noir(50%), Chardonnay (30%) and Pinot Meunier(20%), along with small amounts of Champagne’s “forgotten”grapes” – Pinot Blanc, Arbane and Petit Meslier. From empirical observation, Benoît and Mélanie have singled out 63 parcels that they vinify individually each vintage, permitting unparalled precision in blending decisions for base and reserve wines, but also letting them highlight single vineyard expressions of their land.
