Prof Andries and Mrs Rusty Brink
Andries Brink, well known for his contributions to science and art of medicine has turned to the art and science of winemaking.
From a long life interest in the heart and its well being, his wines are heart-warming for that special occasion.
Made from quality grapes grown in the cool coastal Durbanville area, minimal intervention by the winemaker allows this cultivar to express its full-bodied natural character.
The name Galleon drives from the well-known ship and relates to our Portuguese heritage. They were the first to discover and sail around the Southern shores of Africa. It also refers to the site at which the wine is made, close to the sea in front of a place popular to fisherman, known as Galjoen gat (hole) where the delicate and unique fish to our waters, the Galjoen, which is the Afrikaans for Galleon, is to be found.
We strive for quality associated with the joy of the wine. Grapes come from the centuries old Diemersdal Wine Estate of the Louw family in Durbanville.
Galleon wines, white and red, are made to satisfy everyone’s taste.
With various vintages under his belt, Andries Brink has proven that he has reached a high individual quality for his distinctive wine label.
