History & Geography
Officially proclaimed in 1693, Saxenburg is one of the oldest farms in South Africa. The terroir at Saxenburg is perfectly suited to Shiraz and it is thanks to this varietal that Saxenburg has become a prominent South African export. Thanks to our wine maker’s belief that exceptional wines are made on the vine, we practice a well-managed system of summer pruning to keep yields low. With fewer bunches left, grapes mature into a finer quality and less craft is required in the cellar. Although famous for our Shiraz, many of our wines – reds and whites – are enjoyed around the globe.
