Cape Rock Wines – a Winery Working with Ecological and Sustainable Methods

Cape Rock Wines is a winery located between the towns of Klawer and Vredendal, thirty kilometers from Doringbai on the western coast of South Africa. This region is three hundred kilometers north of Cape Town and occupies a beautiful area of fertile land. The winemakers at Cape Rock Wines work hard and combine traditional and historical traditions with modern and innovative winemaking techniques to produce some of the best wines in the country. Almost all the work in their vineyards and cellars is done with ecological and sustainable methods to protect the natural environment and their vineyards.

Cape Rock Wines tries to be as natural as possible while making wines, with no addition of chemicals and very low use of sulfur in their high quality wines.

Natural Fermentation, a True Showcase of the Local Terroir

Their vineyards are present on a single, eleven-hectare estate right above the banks of the Olifants River. The winery tries to be as natural as possible while making wines. There is no addition of chemicals and very low use of sulfur. The workers handpick the best grapes and press them with an old basket Champagne press. They make use of free-run juice and stop the press before the release of harsh tannins. Whenever possible, Cape Rock Wines uses natural fermentation that gives a variety of flavor and characteristics to their wines. The wines show the qualities of their terroir and the hard work and commitment put in by the winery team.
