Shortest Lunch – Winery Profile – Brumfield Winery

Shortest Lunch – Winery Profile – Brumfield Winery – by Denise McCann

Meet Anda and David Crothers
Owners & Winemakers of Brumfield Winery

David and Anda Crothers have lived and breathed viticulture, winemaking and farming for over 20 years. They love that they own a small winery on a picturesque 26-acre property on the corner of Queens and Beenak Rds in Seville.

In the early days, David and Anda frequented small wineries, enjoying the wines and learning their trade: picking grapes and learning about wine, practically absorbing the passion of those they met.

Through David’s further studies in oenology and viticulture, they realised the dream of operating their own winery. They pride themselves on producing handcrafted wines with natural techniques on their seven acres under vine specialising in Shiraz, Sangiovese and Gewürztraminer.

David and Anda thoroughly embody the French word “terroir” (meaning a set of all environmental factors that affect a crop’s qualities and is grown in a specific habitat).

In 2009 they opened their Cellar Door in Seville. They love welcoming visitors and they offer an intimate tasting experience surrounded by artwork done by local artists and craftspeople. Visitors enjoy seeing Angora goats, Wilma and Betty, as well as their Alpaca, Orion

They have a small market garden and orchard, which produces home grown vegetables and fruit (using organic principals) for Anda’s Kitchen, which offers a menu of relaxed, honest food, prepared in-house with pride. Anda’s house-baked sourdough bread, preserves and produce are well renowned in the community and are also available for purchase to take home.

Take the time to wind down and ask David to share his stories behind the wines and the labels whilst tasting the Brumfield wines. Grab a bite to eat in the al-fresco courtyard or enjoy the ambience of the indoor “kitchen”.

You won’t want to leave!
