About Die Kat se Snor

Gerhard Smith’s day job is as part of the winemaking team for Creation Wines in the Hemel en Aarde. He makes the Kat se Snor (the Cat’s Whiskers) wines as his own side project – a few small parcel, hand (and foot) crafted wines of individual character and texture.

Asked about his winemaking philosophy Gerhard’s reply is short and to the point: “Farm right, then don’t stuff it up in the winery. My aim is to make elegant, terroir-driven wines that are fun to drink, and I’m delighted to be working with the wonderful sites we have at our disposal on the Hemel-en-Aarde Ridge.”
