DE TOREN is a boutique Private Cellar, established by Emil & Sonette Den Dulk in 1994.
The site for the vineyards was selected based on the location (and the view!) with breathtaking vistas extending from Table Mountain in the West, Cape Point in the South, False Bay, Hang Klip and ends with Helderberg and Stellenbosch Mountains in the East.
The farm was named DE TOREN; which translated from Dutch means “the tower”, and refers to the winery structure which allows for gravity-flow winemaking.
De Toren Wines
DE TOREN specializes in making Bordeaux-style red wines, using only the five noble cultivars; Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, Merlot and Malbec. Each of their wines are site specific; a reflection of the soil in which they grow. DE TOREN FUSION V, dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon, is made in the Bordeaux ‘left-bank’ style, while the merlot lead DE TOREN Z, is made in the Bordeaux ‘right-bank’ style. While each offers a unique flavor profile, both are complex and intense with long ageing potential.
