About Us

Nestled in the picturesque Riebeek Valley, tucked up against the slopes of the majestic Kasteelberg, lies Riebeek Cellars.

This medium-sized winery on the western coast of the Cape Province of South Africa sources its grapes from the fertile Riebeek Valley and the slopes of the mountain where the climate is very similar to the Mediterranean. Through the years as vineyard practices developed, cultivars were planted in soil and at slopes best suited to them. These well-tended vineyards enable the production of high quality wines which makes Riebeek Cellars the choice of wine buyers internationally.

Well-known both in South Africa and abroad, Riebeek Cellars manages a variety of brands for various countries.

And while it was formally established in 1941, the Cellar is guided by traditions stretching back more than 350 years.

One is the Dutch trading tradition. For it was Dutch explorer Pieter Cruythoff who stumbled upon the Riebeek Valley in 1661, and founded the town of Riebeek-Kasteel in honour of the administrator of the Cape, Jan van Riebeeck.The other is the French wine making tradition. In 1688, fleeing persecution in France, the French Huguenots arrived at the Cape and deemed the terroir more than suitable for the continuation of their esteemed legacy.

At the end of the day, it’s all about respecting what we have, and being passionate and caring in what we do with it.

Both have led to the tradition of uncomplicated simplicity that you’ll find here today.At Riebeek Cellars we follow a tradition of uncomplicated simplicity – You’ll recognise it in the unpretentious people who call the Valley home. You’ll experience it in the warm yet humble country hospitality for which they’re known.

But, above all, you’ll taste it in a range of wines that balance mild, wet winters with the fruity concentration of hot, dry summers, all born of superb soils and honed in a cellar where time-honoured processes live side-by-side with the best modern wine making techniques.

About Us

A tradition of uncomplicated simplicity also informs how we conduct ourselves. For we believe a great wine can only come from the finest grapes. The finest grapes can only come from good soil. And good soil comes only through collaboration with Mother Nature. Which is why we’re passionate about the ideals of the Integrated Production of Wine (IPW), a South African initiative that aims to decrease chemical intervention and improve waste management throughout the industry. It’s also why we’re a member of the WWF’s Biodiversity in Wine Initiative (BWI), which underlines our commitment to protecting our remaining endemic renosterbos and adopting better farming practices to ensure healthier natural systems.

VISION

To be the premium wine lifestyle brand of choice in South Africa and to establish and grow a sustainable footprint in International Markets.

MISSION

To  process quality grapes optimally & innovatively to produce a premium wine experience that exceeds our client expectations, within a safe working environment where productive employees can develop further.

We've won DOUBLE GOLD at this year's Rosé Rocks Competition, just in time for #InternationalRoséDay tomorrow!
Celebrate with us by purchasing a bottle of our Pinotage Rosé! #Cheers
www.riebeekcellars.com/shop/The 2018 Rosé Rocks competition results are out! First up, the Double Gold winners and a word from our panel chair, Allan Mullins.

"The Rosé Rocks competition continues to go from strength to strength with very high quality entries this year which reflect the increasing skill and attention South African winemakers are applying to this growing category. The trend continues to favor the drier styles with soft floral notes and a pale onion skin appearance. I can confidently say that South African rosé wines compare to the best that the French, Spanish or any other producing nation have to offer. As we come into the summer season again now we must look forward to enjoying these delicious refreshing wines outdoors with everything from seafood to pasta and salads to our favorite braai items or indeed, on their own.”

This is the man who discovered Riebeek Valley in 1661, so we named a sparkling wine after him. Can you guess what it is called?
