Swartland wines, South Africa



Located in Western Cape, near the old town of Malmesbury, Swartland is a famous wine region in South Africa. The entire area encompasses a unique geographic area; starting from the undulating Paardeberg hills in the south to Berg River’s rolling waters in the north.

An excellent coastal climate

The constant Atlantic Ocean breezes adequately support the region's microclimates, offering numerous benefits to its vineyards and the grapefruits.
