About the winery
Shrouded in the misty veils of the Devon Valley, lies the 27 hectares that is Clos Malverne’s premises. The Devon Valley microclimate is the key to the quality of the grapes grown in this serene environment. Although the valley is shallow it acts as a natural receptacle for the mists that linger around Stellenbosch in the early morning hours of summer. The valley is cooler than surrounding areas, significantly lengthening the ripening season, resulting in grapes of ideal ripeness. Clos Malverne practices a careful “handmade” style of winemaking, with minimum interference by the winemaking staff, resulting in elegant wines, which are expressive of their terroir. We are one of only a handful of wineries in the world that remain true to the traditional and time-honoured way of using a Basket Press. Open fermenting cement “kuipe” are also used and their grape-skin caps are punched-down by hand.

History & Geography
Clos Malverne originally only supplied their grapes to Stellenbosch Farmers Winery but in 1987 the owner, Seymor Pritchard, decided to go into winemaking full time with a Cabernet Sauvignon '88 Clos Malverne's first release. During the 90’s Clos Malverne made significant inroads into the wine business, increased its vineyard plantations, which included Pinotage for the first time. Other red varietals, including Merlot and Shiraz, were also planted on selected sites with specific soil compositions to ensure the growth of premium grapes. n 1995 Clos Malverne was one of the very first wineries to produce a classic Cape Blend and it was such a success that this flagship wine, called the Auret, was the first ever Cape Blend to receive 5-star status in the prestigious Platter Wine Guide. This was awarded to the 1998 vintage Auret. Clos Malverne is truly a family affair and our story is indeed one of family; vision and commitment to the handcrafting of excellent wines.
