In the early 1940s, wine farmers in the Perdeberg region grew dissatisfied with the low prices they were getting for their premium quality grapes.
Then an astute farmer named Jan Rossouw suggested they begin producing their own wine and Perdeberg Cellar was born! We pressed our first grapes manually in 1942 and while we have come a long way in terms of technology, we are still renowned for our hands-on approach! Located in fertile Agter Paarl area, between Malmesbury and Durbanville, the Perdeberg district is blessed with many attributes that make producing wonderful and varied wine a pleasure. Named after the scores of Cape Mountain Zebra that once roamed its slopes. We’ve always had a deep respect for the land and put a lot of effort into conserving endangered flora and fauna, so it’s only fitting that one of the region’s most legendary indigenous creatures should find its way into our hearts and onto our wine label. Our vineyards spans over 2300 ha, of which 75% is un-irrigated, whilst 50% is un-trellised, yielding a very low average of 7.8 ton/ha. These smaller berries from dry land bush vines, bring intense colour, added body and passionate flavours.
