Cederberg

“Wines with Altitude” is the catchy slogan for Cederberg Private Cellar, the highest-altitude winery in the Western Cape and a lone wolf in the Cederberg ward––and therefore in the entire province, since Cederberg has no umbrella region or district to claim it.

Unique for its Cederberg Mountains, whose windy faces keep grapes cool and offer well-drained soils as well as the occasional water source from natural springs, Cederberg has a Mediterranean climate and soils that combine shale, sandstone, granite, and clay.

The Cederberg Wilderness Area is largely untouched thanks to conservation efforts, but the vineyards that do populate the region yield fabulous wines from a variety of grapes including the Sauvignon Blanc, Chenin Blanc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Shiraz, and Pinotage; look for their expression of the rare varietal Bukettraube, a fine alternative to off-dry Chenin Blanc.
