" Made in a definite herbaceous style, this Sauvignon Blanc also offers tropical undertones of gooseberries that add fruit to the palate. Well-balanced with zesty acidity, every glassful is fresh and crisp and perfect for warm summer days. ~ Winery Notes
" Riebeek Cellars, located on the western coast of the Cape Province of South Africa, was established over 70 years ago. These wines are meant to be consumed early in life, and therefore the focus is on unmanipulated, unadulterated, straightforward, abundant fruit." Robert Parker's, Wine Advocate
" Riebeek Cellars was established in 1941 and is situated in Riebeek Kasteel at the foot of Bothma's Kloof Pass. This medium-sized winery, on the western coast of the Cape Province of South Africa, sources its grapes from the fertile Riebeek Valley and the slopes of the mountain where the climate is very similar to the Mediterranean. Through the years, as vineyard practices developed, cultivars were planted in soil and at slopes best suited to them. These well-tended vineyards enable the production of high quality wines, which makes Riebeek Cellars the choice of wine buyers internationally.

Nine local wine grape farmers in the Riebeek Valley, established Riebeek Cellars in 1941 on the foothills of the Kasteelberg Mountain. The first of its kind in the Swartland, Riebeek Cellars is the authentic wine producer in the Swartland wine region. The Swartland is a rugged place of untamed beauty and unique, distinctive terroir. The terroir of the Riebeek Valley is mainly affected by a Mediterranean climate and diverse, prehistoric Sandstone and Shale soils from the majestic Kasteelberg Mountain. Both significantly influence the style and quality of our wines. Our vineyards are situated at heights that vary from 60m to 300m above sea level, against the slopes and foothills of the Kasteelberg Mountain.
