Fleur du Cap wines were first launched in 1968, shortly after the opening of Die Bergkelder, the famous mountain cellar which cuts deep into the Papegaaiberg in Stellenbosch
Built by Dr. Anton Rupert, it was the first underground bottle maturation cellar of its kind in the southern hemisphere.
Fleur du Cap is not constrained by farm, vineyard or climate; having the freedom to choose the finest grapes from the best vineyards in the Cape Winelands. The winemaking team unlocks the natural expression inherent in the grapes from pockets of vines in diverse locations selected for their unique terroir and flavour profiles. Stellenbosch is the heartland of these vineyard sites.
