He's one of the most original winemakers we work with, with a far from orthodox journey into wine that's continued in everything he does with the BLANKbottle label. And here's your chance to try a selection of 6 different wines from him!
Each vintage, Pieter sources from around 60 different sites from Ceres to Stellenbosch, and just about every grape variety you've heard of, Chardonnay to Chenin, Viognier to Verdelho. In any given year, he makes around 30 different cuvees, all with an often amusing or brilliant story behind the name too. A number of wines are only ever produced as once offs, and in true Walser style, he designs all the labels himself too.
"People like to label me. Some say I’m a winemaker, an ideas guy, a marketer, asurfer, an actor, a garagiste, a negociant, an entrepreneur. I prefer not to carry a label. To be honest, I wouldn’t know what to label myself. It’s like my wine, BLANKBOTTLE… it’s just a blank bottle. You can’t judge it by the label; it takes drinking a whole bottle to get to know the wine.” Pieter H. Walser
