Nederburg

Philippus Wolvarrt founded Nederburg Winery in 1791 to practice the classical principles of winemaking. Since that time, the generations of winemakers at Nederburg Winery have adopted a progressive and pioneering approach to wine-growing and winemaking, earning the respect of wine enthusiasts and connoisseurs worldwide. For many years, Nederburg Winery has been the most awarded winery in South Africa, with more medals and accolades than any of its counterparts.

Nederburg wines are the best of both worlds, offering the complexity and structure of Old World wines, and the refreshing, fruit-forward nature of New World wines. The Winemaster's Reserve wines are classically styled and food-friendly, elevating every meal. The Heritage Heroes series, including the Young Airhawk, the Anchorman and the Brew Master, celebrate key figures in the history of Nederburg Winery. Both series exhibit Nederburg's commitment to world-class vineyard and cellar skills.
