Born and raised in France, from a Calvados family, Christophe Durand moved to Cape Town in 1995. Initially working as a supplier of premium French wine barrels, he became more and more involved in winemaking, eventually combining his knowledge and passion for fine wines to create Dorrance Wines. Christophe’s philosophy is to interact as little as possible with the grapes, leaving each cuvée to reflect the elegance of its terroir.
