Swartland Winery is situated north of Cape Town, near the town of Malmesbury in the Swartland, a popular wine destination. The vineyards benefit from the constant cool breezes that blow off the Atlantic Ocean, effectively sustaining the many microclimates, while the proximity to mountain ranges adds it own dimension to the physical character of the fruit.

The arable land of the Swartland region is ideally suited for the cultivation of grapes in the bush vine style and the many microclimates enable the production of a wide selection of wines. The end product is much sought after for blending as bush vines produce grapes of excellent quality and flavour.

Today Swartland Winery is one of the leading wineries in South Africa. Member farms extend for a 22 km radius in the hills surrounding Malmesbury, covering roughly 3 600 hectares.

BUSHVINE

The drier conditions of the Swartland region result in smaller grape berries that have increased levels of concentration and flavour components, undiluted by excessive irrigation. Valuable minerals and nutrients are prevented from washing away, and in spring, when the grain dies back, it forms a protective blanket over the soil, further reducing moisture loss during the long hot summers and also curbs the growth of weeds.

The cellar master and viticulturist take a very hands-on approach to grape production. By studying the natural conditions, they assist the contracted wine producers in determining the varieties to plant, test produce throughout the season to determine optimum harvesting time and keep everyone abreast of new developments in the wine industry.
