    南アフリカで最も急速に伸びているワイナリー

    [エルギン地区 ]

    [設立年度 ] 1896

    ポールクルーバー・ワイナリーは、南アフリカ・ケープタウン周辺では平均気温が最も低いエルギン地区にあります。ここは、フランス・ブルゴーニュ地方とほぼ同じ気候で涼しく、その為ワイン用のブドウがゆっくり成長し、良質のブドウが採れる地域として知られています。同社はエルギンのパイオニアとして、「エルギン=ブランド地区」にした立役者で、最近も「南アフリカで最も急速に伸びているワイナリーのトップ10」、「ベストバリュー・ワイナリーのトップ10」、「最もエキサイティングで大発見のトップ10」に選ばれました(Wine Report 2007 by Tom Stevenson)。

    また、国際的に有名なワイン評論家ジャンシス・ロビンソン氏からも「南アフリカの優秀なワイナリー」として高い評価を得ています。

    ポールクルーバー・ワイナリーは、家族経営でワインを造っています。オーナーのポールクルーバー氏は、「徹底した質にこだわるワイン造り」をコンセプトにしています。ワイン造りの工程は、ひとつひとつ丁寧な手作業で行われています。ワインの熟成に使用するオーク樽は、フランスの5社から取り寄せ、それぞれの特徴を活かし、組み合わせることによってワインに複雑みも表現するほどのこだわり様です。

    【人・自然・地域との共生】

    ポールクルーバー氏は、1990年代に入ってアパルトヘイト(人種差別政策)が廃止されると、所有する果樹園やワイナリーの黒人労働者、その地域の住民達の生活向上を目的としたタンディ・プロジェクト(「タンディ」とは、アフリカ系コーサ人の言葉で「愛」を意味します)を提案し、オリジナルブランドのワイン「タンディ」を生産しました。

    その販売利益により、彼らの住む地域の生活環境を改善して行くことを目指しています。

    今では、そのタンディ・ワインも国際的にも高く評価され、タンディ・スタッフも自分の仕事に誇りを持てるようになりました。

    こうしたポールクルーバーのユニークな企画とプロジェクトは、今では南アフリカ国内だけにとどまらず世界からも注目されています。
