  • Nederburg, established in 1791 by Philippus Wolvaart, has a rich history. Philippus built the Nederburg Manor House and it is this investment that changed the future of South African wine. Johann Graue, a German brewer and tea specialist after acquiring Nederburg in 1937, focused more on viticulture. He revolutionized South African winemaking by introducing cold fermentation to the cellar, an innovation wherein the tanks of fermenting grape juice are cooled down to make sure that wine’s aroma and flavor are better retained. 
Nederburg has been declared the Winery of the Year in the 2017 edition of Platter’s By Diners Club South African Wine Guide, with four of its wines across the multi-tiered range earning five-star ratings, more than any other maker.
