The Brandvlei Cellar was established in 1955 and was originally called Brandende Vlei and got its name due to it being the area around hot water springs. The cellar was once positioned beside the Brandvlei dam but after the dam was enlarged, the cellar moved to its current spot in the Breede River Valley along the R43 between Villiersdorp and Worcester.
