Wine of South Africa

"Transport your imagination in a valley framed by old Cape Mountains, a stone throw from the sea near the Cape of Good Hope."



Stellenhoek wines combine a winemaking tradition and history dating back over 350 years (the elegance of the Old World) with the accessible fruit-driven styles of the New world


The Cape’s winegrowing regions are influenced by one of the two mighty oceans which meet at this southernmost tip of Africa: the Atlantic and the Indian oceans. Combine beneficial maritime influences like regular coastal fog and cooling sea breezes with a moderate Mediterranean climate

South Africa is widely recognised as the cradle of mankind. Still older are the soils of the Cape wine regions. They are highly varied, mainly due to pronounced differences in topography and geology, greatly impacting on mesoclimate and vine performance.

Sandy soil, derived from Table Mountain Sandstone, with low nutrient and water-retention properties.
