Cederberg

Cederberg Watch a video about Cederberg

Located more than 100 metres above sea level, Cederberg Private Cellar is easily South Africa’s highest placed winery. The unpolluted air, pristine waters, and varying soil types combine with the cool continental climate of this area (northwesterly breezes in the hot summers and snow in the winter) to make this the ideal terroir for a variety of noble wines, particularly its prize reds.

The Nieuwoudt family's connection with the Cederberg area goes back as far as 1835, with the family settling on the Dwarsrivier farm (on which the Cederberg Private Cellar now stands) in 1893. Current owner and winemaker David Nieuwoudt is the fifth generation to work the farm, with the first vines being planted by his grandfather three generations ago. The family is seen as pioneers in this high altitude and rocky terrain (1,034 meters above sea level), introducing fruit and tobacco to the area and in 1973, vines.

David graduated from the esteemed Elsenburg Agricultural College in Stellenbosch and cut his teeth at Lievland Estate. Taking over the reins of Cederberg Private Cellar in 1997, it didn’t take long for the wine industry to sit up and take notice of this young, dynamic winemaker. Since then, Cederberg Private Cellar has won numerous awards and accolades including 25 Silver, 13 Gold and 7 Double Gold Veritas Awards, one of South Africa's most prestigious and longest running wine competitions. But perhaps his crowning glory was in 2008 when David received news that the Cederberg Shiraz 2006 had won the prestigious ‘International Rhône Varietal Trophy’ at the Decanter World Wine Awards.

Cedarberg Private Cellar lies on a piece of ancient land famed for its breathtaking views, unique terroir and incredible stargazing. Not only is this the Western Cape’s highest laying vineyards (which frees it from typical vineyard diseases), but the region is blessed with incredible natural beauty, tranquility and a continuous supply of pure mountain water. The farm is well-worth a visit with lovely accommodation options in self-catering chalets.
