About our winery:

Excelsior Wine Estate has been in the de Wet
family since 1859 and has a long history of producing good quality wine. The family
philosophy is that good wine starts in the
vineyards – the wine maker can only succeed
with the best ingredients to work with. The
wine farm is situated in the Western Cape,
South Africa, where the fifth generation of the De Wet family continues the special
relationship with the terroir of this great
property of the Breede River Valley.

Three things to love about us:

Freddie and his son, Peter de Wet, who currently own Excelsior, are the fourth and fifth generation of De Wets to farm the land of their ancestors. Excelsior’s rich history and tradition of winemaking has been carried over from generation to generation and it is through their magnificent wines that the De Wet’s family legacy lives on.

What makes us unique:

Bedsides the agricultural and production components, Excelsior also hosts a stylish Tasting Room, Deli and Manor Guesthouse.

Our awards:

Various international and local awards.

Tasting Policy:

You're invited to our tasting room and be part of the original wine blending experience, while you soak up the beautiful views of water, vines and mountains. After tasting our wines you can take up the tradition of blending your own varietals and combine generations of skill and flair with your own style. You can then bottle your blend, cork and label it as your “own creation”.
