WELCOME

HAWK + SCHOON

Our shared love for the fermented grape brought us together.
Hawk + Schoon + You. An appreciation for exotic nuances and floral aromas cemented our friendship. It’s a bond no ordinary wine can break. That’s why we exist and you’re reading this.

Handpicked from some of South Africa’s best producers, we offer a (thoroughly tested and enjoyed) selection of over 150 different wines. Those rare gems you save for special occassions. And doesn’t every day deserve a celebration?

OUR PHILOSOPHY

Quality never disappoints. So we deliver on our promise: to provide wines of value and variety. Many of our collections are only available in small batches, which gives us scope to keep our offering fresh.

ABOUT US

Fritz is co-owner and baker at Schoon, an artisanal bakery and restaurant in Stellenbosch where you can indulge in pure, wholesome food and quality wine. Hawk + Schoon is the brainchild of Fritz and his best friend, Henk Kotze – a fund manager and all-round business buff. Their affinity for fine wine has resulted in a harmonious blend of the best wine local producers have to offer. But don’t take our word for it.

Chris is our sommelier and secret weapon (of mass consumption). While studying at Stellenbosch University, he fell head over heels. His love interest? Wine. He completed WSET Level 3 in 2014 and is currently busy with the WSET Diploma course. Chris was part of Team South Africa who competed at the World Tasting Championship in Champagne, France, in 2014. He was a reserve for the 2015 team.

EVENTS

WINE QUIZ

Do you know your Malbec from your Merlot? Our monthly wine quiz will reveal whether your wine connoisseur persona is the real thing or just a ploy to impress friends. If you’re up for the challenge, join us for a blind tasting of eight wines – four reds and four whites. Seats are limited, so book now!

EVENTS

FOOD &
WINE PAIRINGS

Join us for an intimate experience guaranteed to surprise your palate. We’ll dish up an interesting blend of fine wine and fresh local ingredients, while you get up close and personal with the winemaker. But be prepared. These events often last long into the night, where many a cork is pulled and stories are told!

EVENTS

EDUCATIONAL
TASTINGS

Once a month you can broaden your wine horizons with an educational tasting at Hawk + Schoon. We focus on different cultivars and learn plenty through tasting and discussing interesting wines.
