Cederberg, South Africa
See Cederberg wines we sell
At more than 3,200 feet above sea level, Cederberg Private Cellar is South Africa’s highest vineyard. A cool continental climate, where snow can fall on the vines in winter and northwesterly breezes fan them in the warm summers, combined with unpolluted air and crystal clear waters, make this dramatic landscape the ideal terroir for producing wines of nobility, power and grace.
The Nieuwoudt family has been handcrafting wines at the Cederberg vineyard for five generations. But today there is new excitement and energy at the property with David Nieuwoudt now at the helm. Nieuwoudt’s viticultural training and love of wine have resulted in wines with pronounced character and appeal.
The widdringtonia cedarbergensis tree design on their label signifies the rare Clanwilliam Cedar, one of Africa’s few remaining dinosaur tree families. It occurs only in the high altitudes of the Cedarberg Mountains.
