Founded in 1812, Remhoogte is situated on the steep South Western slopes of the famous Simonsberg mountain in Stellenbosch. The complex soils are some of the oldest of any wine region in the world, resulting in wines rich in character and authenticity with a unique sense of place. Everything on the estate is done by hand, from vineyard to bottle with the help of 10 families who live and work on the farm.
With the terroir being perfectly suited for the production of top end red wines the focus is on Bordeaux varietals as well as Pinotage. On the white wines the focus is on Chenin Blanc produced from old vines, a cultivar that performs incredibly well in this region. Their philosophy in the vineyards and cellar is to interfere as little as possible. They are farming for the future generations so sustainability is key to ensure the health of their soils and vineyards.
We love the reserve range not only for it’s outstanding quality but for it’s incredible value compared to other wines in it’s class!
