South Africa

Our South African range of wines are all from the Western Cape with a selection from Stellenbosch, Franschhoek, Simonsberg-Paarl Walker Bay and Robertson we have now extended the range to include 3 further areas Wellington Elgin and Cape Agulhus.

Stellenbosch

Clos Malverne - The Devon Valley microclimate is key to the quality of grapes grown on Clos Malverne. Although the valley is shallow it acts as a natural receptacle for the morning summer mists that linger around Stellenbosch. The valley is cooler than surrounding areas, significantly lengthening the ripening season, resulting in very ripe grapes. The vineyards are mostly planted on the gently sloping terrain of the valley. 

Peter Falke - The exclusive winery of Peter Falke is nestled against the majestic slopes of the Helderberg mountains in the heart of the Stellenbosch winelands, South Africa. Groenvlei Farm is home to rambling magenta bougainvillea, delicate scented roses and wild lavender growing alongside carefully cultivated vineyards.

Dating back to the 18th century, the traditional gabled Cape Dutch buildings of the wine estate belie a contrasting modernity within. The stately old homestead is partnered by a "boutique" winery, contemporary wine tasting room and luxurious outdoor lounge which have established Peter Falke Wines as the most elegant and serene sundowner retreat in the winelands.

The Falke family has been doing business in South Africa since 1969. Peter Falke was born in Germany. His dream to own a farm came true when he acquired Groenvlei in 1995.

Bellevue Wine Estate - Bellevue Wine Estate in the prestigious Stellenbosch wine growing region in South Africa, cultivates approximately 152ha of vineyards on a variety of sites. This enables the winemaker to select the very best pockets from which to make the exquisite wines that Bellevue Wine Estate is renowned for. Recently a state of the art tasting room and restaurant has been furnished inside one of the historical wings of the cellar. Child friendly and with modern finishes and comfort, this proves a destination not to be missed!

Mulderbosch - Since its founding in 1989, Mulderbosch Vineyards has widely been accepted as one of South Africa’s foremost wine producers. In 2011 Mulderbosch was bought by California-based investment company Terroir Capital with well known wine investor Charles Banks at the helm, who had long desired to invest in the Cape Winelands.

Franschoek

La Chataigne -  bottle only a fraction of their grapes, making a total of about 15,000 bottles. The grapes are hand selected to create a style of wines that is fresh, fruity, elegant and accessible to both pallet and pocket. The bottles are unique - the front label is written by hand directly onto each and every bottle!

Lynx Wines - Lynx Wines are a relatively new vineyard the maiden vintage was 2003 with only 500 cases produced. Situated on the foothills of the Klein Drakenstein Mountains just outside Franschhoek, Lynx Wines is the smallest Wine Estate in the Valley producing now just under 7000 cases per annum

Four Paws - The Four Paws team are passionate about their wine, but they are also passionate about animals, particularly cats. They aim to infuse the wines with elegance and balance, the same characteristics shown by a cat as it ambles confidently along a garden wall. 

Stony Brook - Stony Brook Vineyards is a small family-run wine farm in the beautiful Franschhoek valley, only 40 minutes' drive from Cape Town. they concentrates on producing top quality wines that reflect the unique micro climate of this southern-most corner of Franschhoek.

Walker Bay

Barton Estate - Set on gentle slopes of the Kogelberg overlooking the Botriver Valley to Walker Bay are Barton’s vineyards, olive groves, essential oil plantations and villas. With its frost-free climate and exposure to the cool sea breezes, it is here on Barton that exceptional award-winning wines are produced.

Wellington

Nabygelegen Winery - Nabygelegen has a very old history of winemaking and the original cellar building dating back to well before its inscribed 1815 gable. Small productions of concentrated wines have already gained critical acclaim confirming their mission to create wines of character and concentration passionately reflecting the terroir.

Elgin Valley

South Hill is situated in the Elgin Valley and famous for top quality apples and pears, the farm used to be planted with fruit orchards.

The cold winters, cool summers and the deep fertile soils which made the valley the obvious choice for apple farmers also means that influential and respected wine makers are now investing in Elgin.

South Hill was purchased by South African business men in May 2001, it has seen some dramatic changes since. The neglected apple and pear farm has been transformed into a premium wine estate.

Cape Agulhus

Black Oystercatcher - At Black Oystercatcher Wines, they produce top quality wines of a world-class standard. The grapes, grown in the cool tip of Africa winds in the Elim wine ward, are smaller than usual – with more intense flavours as a result.
