About LJ Crafted Wines
Born in Cape Town, Lowell Jooste is fourth generation in the South African Wine Industry. LJ Crafted Wines was born from an intention to reduce environmental impact, which inspired creative thinking around standard practices in the wine industry. To break with normal methods of bottling and packaging by adopting the use of growlers seen in the San Diego craft beer industry, Lowell focused on developing a delivery system which would enable wine to be served directly from the barrel. Lowell has supplemented the role of the barrel, the traditional and beloved component of winemaking, with his high quality, hygienic and simple technology that has the potential to change how wine is offered – the distinctive feature at LJ Crafted Wines Tasting Room.
