Wildeberg White, 2018

Wildeberg is our small farm in Franschhoek. Only 10ha can be planted to vines, the rest is wild. The fruit for the Wildeberg wines comes from the Franschhoek Valley only, hand-harvested, naturally-fermented and gently matured in our mountain barrel hall on the farm.

How it's made

Sourced from ancient bush vines in the Franschhoek Valley in the south-eastern corner of the Cape's Coastal Region. Franschhoek is amongst the oldest planted region's in the Cape, with Semillon have been planted here in 1679 by French Huguenot settlers. Naturally-fermented in new and older oak at our Franschhoek farm, there is very little magic involved other than the fruit itself.
