South African wine has a history dating back to 1659, with the first bottle produced in Cape Town by its founder Jan van Riebeeck. Access to international markets led to new investment in the South African wine market. Production is concentrated around Cape Town, with major vineyard and production centres at Constantia, Paarl, Stellenbosch and Worcester. There are about 60 appellations within the Wine of Origin (WO) system, which was implemented in 1973 with a hierarchy of designated production regions, districts and wards. WO wines must only contain grapes from the specific area of origin. “Single vineyard” wines must come from a defined area of less than 5 hectares. An “Estate Wine” can come from adjacent farms if they are farmed together and wine is produced on site. A ward is an area with a distinctive soil type or climate and is roughly equivalent to a European appellation.

2.Babylonstoren

In front of the impressive scenery of the Simonsberg and the Franschhoek Mountains, the Babylonstoren winery stretches out. Its origins date back to 1692, when Pieter van der Byl planted the first vineyards on the farm and made irrigation possible by converting the canals. Some of these old structures have survived to this day, as has the Cape Dutch architecture of the Manor House or the former cowshed where the Babel Restaurant is located, because a few years ago the new owners Koos Bekker and his wife Karen Roos restored the winery – and the historic fruit and wine farm took a turn. Today Babylonstoren is one of the best preserved Cape Dutch-style wineries.

3.Haute Cabriere

 

Our commitment to family, quality and innovation has resulted in a name known as much for the warm and welcoming atmosphere as for the iconic red and white crest of our founding family.

Founded on the values of family, community and sharing, the von Arnim family of Haute Cabrière has been artfully harnessing the unique terroir (sun, soil and vine conditions) of the Franschhoek Valley since the property was bought in 1982.

Our farm was established in the Franschhoek Valley in 1694 by French Huguenot, Pierre Jourdan. Custom in the Champagne Valley of France dictates that champagne created from the vines of the land is named after the landowner. True to this tradition, founder of Haute Cabrière, Achim von Arnim, named the first range of exceptional Cap Classique wines Pierre Jourdan after the original landowner.

5. Jordan Wines Stellenbosch

Gary and Kathy Jordan have been making world-class wines since 1993 on a farm with a history going back over 300 years. He’s a geologist, she’s an economist – together this husband and wife team is a phenomenon. Gary’s parents, Ted and Sheelagh, bought the now 164-hectare Stellenbosch property in 1982, and embarked on an extensive replanting programme, specializing in classic varieties suited to the different soils and slopes.

From the Jordan hillside vineyards, one has spectacular panoramic views of Table Mountain, False Bay and Stellenbosch. Gary and Kathy worked internationally for two years, refining their high-energy instincts with practical experience. They returned home to build a cellar in 1992.

The following year, the vines were judged ready for making wines that would carry the Jordan name. From that first year, it was obvious that a new star had been added to the winemaking firmament. Continuing success has enlarged the team, with the focus on producing fiercely individual wines that combine the fruity accessibility of the New World with the classic elegance of the old.
