Olifantsberg Family Vineyards

Above the Breede River on Northwest facing slopes of the Brandwacht Mountains is the Olifantsberg Family Vineyards. You will find out right outside Worcester on the Ceres Road. The farm was bought in 2003 and all that grew were two small vineyards of Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon. 2004 saw the first production of wine under the Olifantsberg label in the winery of a wine cooperative.

The estate celebrated their first vintage a year later and thereafter in 2007 converted a glass blowing studio into a cellar to produce their own wine in. This building is now known as the Olifantsberg Boutique Wine Cellar. The estate has an annual harvest of 25 tons and the focus is on quality with a low yield of grapes to concentrate the flavour of the wines. More vines have been planted on the farm and include Shiraz, Chardonnay, Pinotage and Chenin Blanc. Only 5 hectares are under vines and when adding blocks to their estate, they’ll plant cultivars which are heat, drought and wind resistant which are important in the Breedekloof region.

To view more wine estates in the region see Breedekloof Wine Estates or see South Africa Wine Estates for a general overview and links to other wine producing regions.
