There’s a phrase in Afrikaans which you hear a lot in the winelands of the Western Cape. When speaking to South African growers and winemakers about their processes and guiding principles, you’re never far from the remark ‘n boer maak ‘n plan: ‘a farmer makes a plan’.

This willingness to improvise to solve problems is a refreshing approach – and it’s one which Hannes Storm, owner and winemaker at Storm Wines, embraces every day. On both occasions we’ve met recently, he’s responded to various questions with a shrug and ’n boer maak ‘n plan.
