Capaia Winery- a Family Estate Established in 1997

Capaia Winery was established in 1997 by Alexander Baron von Essen and Ingrid Baroness von Essen on a former wheat farm. It is a part of the Philadelphia winegrowing area near Durbanville. According to the Chateau principle, in 2005, Capaia Winery was declared as a wine estate. It spreads over an area of around 140 hectares and extends upwards from the northeastern side of the Olifantskop. The winery property is ten kilometers from the Atlantic and about thirty kilometers from Cape Town as both influence the terroir of the region.

Capaia Winery is equipped with all the latest and state-of-the-art winemaking technology for the creation of delightful, luscious South African wines.

De-stemming and Fermentation at the Winery

Capaia Winery was built on a slope at a height of almost two hundred meters. It is equipped with all the latest and state-of-the-art winemaking facilities for the creation of delightful, luscious South African wines. The climate, rainfall, and soil are perfect in the region for the cultivation of wines. The land has a lot of minerals and high water storage capacity that leads to the growth of good quality grapes. At the winery, the winemakers de-stem the grapes before sending them to the fermentation tanks. Fermentation of red wine takes place in oak casks throughout fifty-six tanks. This technique, combined with the gravity falling of the juice, creates some unique, clean and outstanding wines. Their wines show the features of their region, their hard work, and dedicated commitment.

Cultivated Grape Varieties and Dining at Capaia

The main varieties of grapes grown at Capaia Winery are Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Shiraz, Petit Verdot, and Merlot. The best grapes are handpicked and go into the production of their world-class red and white wines. The winery also houses a restaurant named, Mariella’s, for the delight of their winery visitors.
