Established in 1791, near Paarl, Nederburg is South Africa's most awarded winery and the popular choice of critics and regular winelovers. We leave most of the work to nature but in the cellar we coax the very best from our fruit, blending contemporary styling with classic flair to create blance, fine flavour and refreshment.
