TASTE THE DISTINCTION OF 
THE dry land INFLUENCE

Situated at the foothills of the Paardeberg Mountain in Paarl, one of the finest wine-growing areas of the Cape, lies Perdeberg Cellar. The hallmark and most differentiating quality of Perdeberg wines is our predominant use of unirrigated vineyards, termed dry land vines. Overcoming difficult growing conditions, dry land vines yield small berries with concentrated flavour and colour which in turn create superior wines. The winery’s rich history dates back to 1941, when a visionary wine farmer named Jan Rossouw suggested the area’s farmers begin producing their own wine. Perdeberg adopted its distinguishing name from the scores of Cape Mountain zebras that once roamed the Paardeberg area, mistaken for wild horses by local inhabitants.

With a vineyard span of over 3000 hectares, mainly in the Paarl and Swartland regions, Perdeberg benefits from different microclimates and various soil types. The natural variation of weather, soil, drainage and altitude from vineyard to vineyard enables us to produce a wide range of wines with distinct qualities and character. In the cellar, our wines are created through the synergy of art, intuition and science to reveal the best of what has been brought in from the vineyards. We follow a wine estate inspired process including intensive vineyard management, handpicking grapes in small crates, small presses and maturing in barrels, to achieve exceptional quality.

ETHICAL & SUSTAINABLE FARMING

AT PERDEBERG WE ARE COMMITTED TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE THROUGH BEING GOOD TO THE EARTH AND GOOD TO OUR PEOPLE.

We invest in our people and empower them with opportunities to make a positive social and environmental impact. A selection of internship programmes also offer young people work experience, training and mentorship in the various areas of our business. Fairtrade (FLSA) accreditation is held by our key producers, ensuring that a high standard of ethical and sustainable farming activities is maintained throughout the entire production chain.

We uphold our dedication to “think green” through various efforts that support sustainable farming with biologically controlled methods like the use of natural enemies to suppress mealy bugs avoiding chemical use. Our dry land viticulture practices also support the use of minimal water as we believe in the conservative use of our country’s natural resources.

All red wines are vegan-friendly as no animal by-products are used in the production process of these wines. We are also constantly reinvesting in new resources and technologies that will see the expansion of vegan-friendly products in our ranges.
