Nederburg wine farm is perfectly positioned just outside Paarl, and offers breathtaking views of the Drakenstein mountains and the farm’s vineyards and gardens. Add to that a rich history of wine production, dating back to 1791, and an array of tasting experiences on offer to visitors, and you have a wonderful Winelands escape on your hands.
One of the many attractions this farm has to offer is its elegant wine-tasting room, in the Nederburg Visitor’s Centre. Here you can experience the variety of flavours that comprise the cellar’s award-winning wine range. The tasting lounge is cosy, and epitomises comfort and class, with the mountains and vineyards of Paarl providing an enchanting backdrop.
Sniff, sip, swallow at Nederburg Visitor’s Centre
The wines can be enjoyed by themselves, or paired with interesting food options such as goat’s milk cheese, sweet confectioneries and ice cream. There’s even a pairing option for children (the wine is substituted for something more child-friendly, of course). Stylish snack boxes are also available to buy.
Nederburg’s prestigious wine range includes the everyday, classically-styled The Winemasters collection, as well as a number of specialty offerings, such as the Manor House, Heritage Heroes and Ingenuity collections.
The Ingenuity collection offers an Italian blend (a fusion of Italian varietals: Sangiovese, Barbera and Nebbiolo); a Spanish blend (combining Tempranillo and Graciano); and a white blend (combining eight varietals, including Sauvignon Blanc and Chenin Blanc).
Nederburg’s acclaimed Cabernet Sauvignon, from The Winemasters, The Manor House and Two Centuries collections, are a highlight of the tasting experience. The wines are decanted first, and then served in a Riedel glass, which you can choose to take home with you (at an additional cost).
