Our Valley

The Robertson wine valley is nestled at the foothills of the Langeberg Mountains, less than two hours drive from Cape Town. The valley embraces an abundance of fauna and flora, graceful hills and the tranquil Breede River that meanders towards the ocean.

The climate is characterised by sunny summers and cold winters with the mountain peaks occasionally covered in snow. The annual rainfall is around 400mm. During sunny summer days a south east breeze from the coast has a cooling effect on the vineyards, allowing the grapes to ripen evenly and in perfect balance.

The soils of the valley have the highest free limestone content in South Africa, varying from rocky mountain gravel soil as well as red clay to deep alluvial soil on the riverbanks, ideal for growing premium quality winegrapes.

South Afica

At the southern tip of Africa where the Indian and Atlantic oceans meet, lies the city of Cape Town, a great wine capital of the world and the gateway to the South African winelands.

The South African wine tradition dates back more than 350 years. The first wine produced in South Africa was made by Jan van Riebeeck at a settlement founded by the Dutch East India Company.

Over the past few centuries the art of winemaking has been nurtured to perfection with its origin in the classic 'old world' of France, Germany and Italy, but also an awareness of the fruit-driven styles of the 'new world' wines from California and Australia

The winelands of South Africa is synonymous with the production of fine wines and truly express the uniqueness of its terrior and people. SA Region
