Ayama

The wine was named "Ayama", a Xhosa word meaning "someone to lean" means. The adventure of Ayama based on friendship and love. The Cape winelands are some of the most breathtakingly beautiful in the world. About 50 km from Cape Town, Paarl is situated beneath a large granite outcrop formed by three rounded domes, the prominent one named Paarl (which means pearl) rock. The summers are long and warm, and rainfall rare. A large variety of grapes are grown in Paarl, of which Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinotage, Shiraz, Chardonnay and Chenin Blanc have the best potential.

Simonsig

Named after the majestic views of the Simonsberg Mountain, Simonsig Estate is situated in the famous Stellenbosch Winelands just 45 km east of Cape Town. Since French Huguenot Jacques Malan first set foot in the Cape in 1688, the Malan family’s wine knowledge accumulated over many generations, has equipped them to excel as one of the leading private producers of estate wines in South Africa. The late Frans Malan, beloved patriarch of the Malan Family and one of the pioneers of the South African wine industry, was not only a craftsman of superior wines, but also introduced numerous Simonsig ‘firsts’, cementing the estate’s stately legacy in the Cape Winelands.

Vriesenhof Vineyards

At Vriesenhof, the art of winemaking is a fascinating journey that begins in the vineyards and ends with the enjoyment that accompanies a raised glass. Follow this journey and you will most certainly pause for reflection in the solitude of the Vriesenhof cellars. Traditional wood maturation methods combine effortlessly with modern fermentation processes. Add to this an ageing process that takes place in a setting disturbed only by the patient ticking of the clock and the artistry of the winemaker at work and you'll soon understand why Vriesenhof consistently delivers wines of true Stellenbosch origin.

Meinert Vineyards

Wine is my means of expression, not just of myself but also such tangible aspects as our sites. As a young man I worked by chance for a few years as a journalist. I think I was searching for an artistic outlet and fortunately found it in winemaking, which began as a fascination with the product. Though I still dream of exploring other artistic endeavours I remain excited by the challenge of trying to make great wines. The quest is a very personal one to share distinctive wines and their stories with our friends and customers. – Martin Meinert

Zonneweelde

Breedekloof is one of the youngest wine regions in South Africa and was best known for its bulk wines. However, in collaboration with the Slanghoek Winery, Zonneweelde wants to offer a range of wines that can compete with the better wines of appellations such as Stellenbosch, Paarl, Darlington and other more famous regions. Currently, the Breedekloof wine region consists of only 22 producers. Together they want to significantly increase the quality of their valley. Zonneweelde and Slanghoek are among these pioneers. The top wines of Zonneweelde Vineyards are made on a limited basis and come from the best lots in the vineyard. The grapes are picked by hand, selected and made and raised as befits the better class wine. For cellar master Pieter Carstens and his team Zonneweelde is a major challenge and the pride of the Breedekloof valley.
