Clos Malverne Winery, A Blend of Cultures in the Name and Location

Clos Malverne is a winery that was initially known as Malvern Heights. Seymourd Pritchard bought the ten-hectare estate in 1969 from Colonel JW Billingham. The name, at the time, was Malvern Heights because of the rolling hills around Malverne in his home country England. Seymour started winemaking in the 1980s when France was still considered the center of winemaking in the world. He changed the name of the estate to Clos Malverne because the homestead reminded of a Clos in France. Now Seymour and Sophia Pritchard run the winery along with their hard-working team.

The main aim of Clos Malverne Winery is to produce handcrafted, traditional wines using natural winemaking processes.

The Aim of and Pride of Clos Malverne

Vineyard plantings were increased and selected fertile soils were analyzsed so that they could achieve premium quality in their grapegrowing. The winemakers use natural production methods for their wines without much intervention. Their wines express the qualities of their region and a unique blend of French tradition, English pride, and South African terroir.
