Cape of Good Hope

This is a range created in recognition of the Cape of Good Hope’s vinous heritage, which stretches back more than 350 years, when the first Governor of the Cape planted grapes. These unique wines are the result of irreplaceable parcels of old vines and site specific terroirs. The labels reflect the grape variety as well as the origin and singular characters behind them.
