Swartland Winery

Our premium, single varietal ranges are produced exclusively from characterful bush vines grown in the heart of the Swartland.

About the winery
Swartland Winery is situated about 70km north of Cape Town and 3km outside the town of Malmesbury on the road to Paarl. In the heart of the Swartland the winery harvests its grapes from wine farms spread out on the hills around Malmesbury. The vineyards benefit from the constant cool breezes that blow off the Atlantic Ocean, effectively sustaining the many microclimates, while the proximity to mountain ranges adds its own dimension to the physical character of the grape berry.

History & Geography
In 1948 Swartland Co-operative was established with 15 members in the local movie house. Not only was independence from KWV achieved but they now had a winery where they could deliver and press their own grapes. The first chairman of the newly formed co-operative donated 4 hectares of his own farm Doornkuil, to be used for developing the winery. Today, Swartland Winery produces approximately 2.0 million bottles of wine a year from grapes supplied by producers across an area of 3 600 hectares.
