About our winery:

Shrouded in the misty veils of the Devon Valley, lies the 27 hectares that is Clos Malverne’s premises.

The vineyards reside on the gentle slopes of the valley to ensure the most favourable exposure to sunshine.
Clos Malverne practices a careful “handmade” style of winemaking, with minimum interference by the winemaking staff, resulting in elegant wines, which are expressive of their terroir. We are one of only a handful of wineries in the world that remain true to the traditional and time-honoured way of using a Basket Press.

Open fermenting cement “kuipe” are also used and their grape-skin caps are punched-down by hand. The cellar can effectively manage the crush and vinification of up to 400 tons of grapes, although the yields from the vineyards are presently producing at 350 tons per annum. Small French and American oak casks are used to mature the premium red wines.

Three things to love about us:

Clos Malverne Wine Estate not only offers world-class wines, but also features an award-winning Restaurant; relaxing Day Spa as well as relaxing and bespoke Accommodation.

What makes us unique:

We are one of only a handful of wineries in the world that remain true to the traditional and time-honoured way of using a Basket Press.
Clos Malverne is also renowned for it's highly acclaimed Food & Wine Experience.
It was also the first wine estate to offer the unique combination of Ice Cream & Wine Paring.

Our awards:

The Auret 1998 vintage was the first Cape Blend ever to receive 5-star status in the prestigious Platter Wine Guide.

After receiving such high praise, the same wine went on to be the South African Red Wine Champion in 2001; it was eventually awarded the Grand Prize as most outstanding wine (red or white) of that year.

Since then Clos Malverne wines have consistently won numerous local and International wine awards.
