Napier Vineyards

Leon Bester, Napier Vineyards

Das Weingut Napier Vineyards und seine Weinberge liegt in der Region Wellington, 70km nord-östlich von Kapstadt, am Fuße der Hawequa Mountains.

Alle Trauben stammen aus eigenen Weinbergslagen, die liebevoll gepflegt werden und durch konsequente Ertragsregulierung die Basis für unsere Premiumweine bilden.

Die Förderung der einzelnen Typizitäten der Rebsorten und eine gute Balance im Weinberg stehen im Focus.

“Our Aim is to craft a range of premium wines that rank with the world’s best, while reflecting the soils of the small valley where Napier lies.”

Napier Winery, set in a magnificent valley close to Wellington in the Western Cape, owes its name to Sir George Napier, Governor of the Cape of Good Hope from 1837 to 1843. It was Napier that christened the quaint rural town after the famous Duke of Wellington.

Present owner, Michael Loubser, purchased the farm in 1989. Following the change in ownership the farm was upgraded, a modern winery was built, followed by a modern maturation and fermentation cellar. The new millennium added a brandy distillery, and alongside quality, handcrafted wines, now stands the Sir George potstill brandy.
