Bou-saada is a pilgrimage town in Algeria built around an oasis. With “Bou” meaning father and “saada” peace and happiness, it is a place where visitors find spiritual refreshment, goodness and a sense of well-being.
Bought in 1996 the 100 acre property, Bou-saada, is now home to a 13 acre vineyard which began with plantings of Sauvignon Blanc vines in 1997 followed by Merlot, Chardonnay and Riesling in 1998. All these varietals are now in bottle. In 2001, a further 7 acres were prepared for planting out in 2002 adding Pinot Noir, Tempranillo and Cabernet Franc.
Trees felled were mobile milled and the timber used to clad the cellar door building with Sydney Blue Gum and Stringy Bark making beautiful bench and table tops. The mixed variety vineyard enables Bou-saada to produce a wide-range of exclusive wines from their own grapes.
