Diemersfontein Tasting Room
Diemersfontein wine estate is situated in Wellington, Western Cape and lies in the shadow of the beautiful Hawekwa Mountain with a panoramic view of Du Toit’s Kloof and Bains’ Kloof.
Guests can enjoy the breathtaking scenery, while sipping on some of Diemersfontein’s finest wines, while we take care of any orders you would like to place at the cellar door!
The first vineyards were planted in the 1970’s and in 2000 a cellar was build and soon started to produce award-winning wines. Varietals planted are Shiraz, Pinotage, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Viognier, Barbera, Roobernet and Mourvedre. The first trophy was one in 2001 for a wooded Pinotage, and from then on accolades and awards are continuing to be granted to the Estate.
The Diemersfontein Coffee Chocolate Pinotage has a somewhat cult following in South Africa, winning The People’s Choice at the Durban Mercury Wine Week, WineX – Cape Town & WineX – Joburg for 4 consecutive years. So large is their following, Dave Sonnenburg the owner hosts a ‘pinotage on tap’ festival in 3 cities once a year where thousands of people get to enjoy music and food while drinking as much pinotage as they can!
