The Helderberg, rises majestically above False Bay in Stellenbosch, South Africa. Famers have planted vines here for centuries, discovering that its soils and proximity to the ocean are ideal for the cultivation of premium grapes.
The first Helderberg Winery was established in 1906 and, in that year, made the first wine in the new winery on the slopes of the Helderberg. Over the following decades, the winery grew in stature, based on its pedigree of consistently producing excellent red wines, most notably, Cabernet Sauvignon.
The winery was instrumental in establishing the area's reputation and high regard and today, the Helderberg is widely acknowledged as one of the key homes of fine red wine in South Africa.
