It is often said that the simplest philosophies hold truest, and that of Excelsior Wines is no exception. The family’s philosophy that “good wine starts in the vineyards – the wine maker can only succeed with the best ingredients to work with” is one that couldn’t be simpler and more reliable.

Excelsior strives to produce “full bodied wines that display intense fruit” which they achieve time and again through thorough vineyard practices with a minimal use of chemicals, and thereby creating an environment which allows nature to show its finest works. They have the history to back-up there practices too, the farm dates back to 1859 when Koos de Wet branched out from Stellenbosch but the family made the planting of vines a priority as soon as they set foot upon South African shores in 1697.

Excelsior exports their elegant wines to more than 20 countries and the farm has 220ha dedicated to the noble cultivars of Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Shiraz, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Small crops of Petit Verdot and Viogner are also on the estate used for blending. Robertson has proved to be the ideal location for Excelsior and the grapes take full advantage of its unique climate to produce in them fantastic flavour before being handpicked and crafted into the elegant wines you can enjoy today.
