BLOEMENDAL ESTATE WINES
Bloemendal Wine Estate is situated in the fertile Durbanville Wine Valley. It was established in 1702 to provide fresh produce to Cape Town and the Dutch East Indian Company ships travelling on the spice route to and from India. The first wine cellar was built in 1920 by Jannie van der Westhuizen and Bloemendal was registered as an Estate in 1987. Vineyard plantings on the estate are mainly French cultivars with the focus on Sauvignon Blanc. Many winemakers have commented that this site is one of the best for Sauvignon Blanc in South Africa. Wines are made in their small boutique cellar using old and new world methods to produce wines that reflect their terroir.
We decided that there is no better way to celebrate the character of such a terroir than to show it for what it is: a beautiful landscape.
