ANOTHER PERDEBERG FIRST

With the winemaking process almost perfect, it was time to turn to the vineyards. The expertise of a viticulturist was called in to help choose the right cultivars and implement ideal grape growing and harvesting methods. This tactic proved so successful that we soon became the first winery in the area to employ a full-time viticulturist.

THE ONE WITH THE ZEBRA

In 2005, Perdeberg entered the bottled wine market and we soon earned our stripes in the local and international awards arena. More importantly, this bold step brought us in direct contact with consumers – and allowed us to develop a demand for our product through an international distribution network within a short space of time.

BARREL MATURATION FACILITY

As our premium wine market continued to grow the need for a dedicated temperature controlled facility where wine could develop and mature in barrels, increased. The barrel cellar was built in 2014 and dedicated to Pieter du Toit, a director with a long-serving family history. These barrels are the nurturing vessels for our premium products, particularly where our Dry Land Collection wines are carefully crafted.
