Visit Wilderers Distillery for a Tasting

Wilderer’s Distillery can be found in the heart of Paarl and pays homage to restaurateur, Helmut Wilderer who has been distilling Grappa and fine Schnaps for decades. His restaurant Katzenberger’s Adler was renowned in Germany and after studying ‘the Art of Distillation’ in Austria, he got the first licence in South Africa to produce Grappa and Schnaps in 1994.

Wilderers is home to one of the most innovative and high-tech distilleries in the world and allows for triple distillation in one step and a 700 litre capacity. The distilling process begins with fermented grape skins or fruit being heated in a copper kettle. Thereafter pure alcohol begins to evaporate slowly and only a few litres are good enough to become Wilderer’s Eau de vie. In 2000, the distillery moved from Stellenbosch to Paarl and Schnaps lovers can’t miss out on a stop for tasting and the restaurant.

Enjoy the restaurant’s offerings with a view of Groot Drakenstein Mountains and if you’re there in summer, you’ll be treated to live music. One of the menu’s highlights includes an Alsace speciality, fl ammenküche, a French-style pizza with a creamy base of onion and bacon. Add toppings or enjoy as is. Don’t forget to include a sample of the excellent Grappa.
