After 12 years at Boschendal Winery, Thinus Krüger decided to take his experience and direct his passions into another venture. Or, shall we say, adventure. Thinus started FRAM as a personal passion project with the intention of creating a wine that radiates almost as much personality as the winemaker himself. He promises to “always sail into unchartered waters, to boldly search for whatever grapes lie behind the next hill, over the next horizon.” With FRAM, Thinus throws safety out the door to turn risk into reward, and it is this confident, audacious and intuitive spirit that makes his wines worth it. And his tremendous amount of talent certainly helps, too.
