The history of Nederburg began in 1791; with a journey of discovery with the love of winemaking at heart. Philippus Wolvaart, a man of courage and vision, bought the farm that lay between the Berg and Palmiet rivers for 5600 guilders. Hand in hand with his wife, Margaretha, they nurtured the land and built a strong foundation on which the success of Nederburg was to flourish.
In 1800, Philippus Wolvaart completed the beautiful thatch-roofed Cape Dutch manor house, now a national monument. Wolvaart’s wife, Margaretha, looked forward to the completion of their family home, a gracious H-shaped homestead in the Vernacular Cape style. Sadly, Margaretha passed away just before the Manor House was complete, leaving Wolvaart alone in his pride.
Nederburg's reputation as South Africa's most awarded name in wine is no cause for complacency. A shared sentiment among their wine masters is that “Curiosity is key to forever discovering new ways of doing things better".
Nederburg offers a range of award-winning wines – from limited-edition cuvées sold exclusively on the prestigious annual Nederburg Auction to the flagship Ingenuity blends. Our wine masters reiterate; “the secret lies in the details; from the location of vineyards and the liaison with the network of growers across the Cape, to the harvesting schedules, the handling of fruit, and the way it is vinified in the cellars”.
Amongst their award-winning vintages is the recently released gourmet Heritage Heroes of wooded whites and reds. The classically styled Winemaster's range is tailored and finessed to appeal to the most discerning palate. And it's hard not to be seduced by the bright, lively and very smooth-drinking 56HUNDRED range or the delicious 1791 offerings. These wines are brimming with succulent ripe fruit from the first whiff to the last lingering sip.
Our wine masters enjoy frequent international exposure not only in the cellar but also to wine lovers around the world. The necessity to understand what people are drinking, how and why, is held of great importance at Nederburg.
