Fryer's Cove

Fryer’s Cove is the only vineyard within the Bamboes Bay ward. The vines of Fryer’s Cove dot the hillside 500 meters from where the cold Atlantic Ocean throws its breakers against the rocky shore. Fryer’s Cove wines have a distinct maritime flavour, hence our slogan ‘Forged of the earth, Tempered by the sea’.

Old Road Wine

We work hand in glove with the growers of these unique old vineyards, some of them more being 85 years old. As nature has done her part in providing us with these special grapes, it is now our turn to return the favour and do the work in the cellar to make sure each vintage is stand-out.

Gorgeous

Crafted in the traditional Methode Cap Classique style, Gorgeous Sparkling is superbly luscious in character yet refreshingly elegant and beautifully balanced. Both gorgeous in name and nature, it’s a must for any bubbly lover’s repertoire.

Mill Stream

Our Millstream wines are named after the art of milling flour using a grinding stone. Much in the same way a grinding stone refines, so does the vine transform the bountiful gifts of nature into the magic of our grapes. Our wines are made in an artisanal manner, with the utmost care taken to produce wines respectful of the grapes from which they were made. These swingingly delicious fruity wines will ferry you on a nostalgic journey back to a time when life was slower and simpler, to carefree days filled with happy moments.

Oude Kaap

Oude Kaap captures the romantic heritage of Cape Dutch architecture, successfully combining centuries-old tradition with modern technology. At the tip of Africa lies the Cape of Good Hope otherwise known as the ‘Old Cape’ to the initial settlers of South Africa, who first made wine over 350 years ago.

Ribshack Red

A full bodied juicy red wine with rich, ripe dark berry flavours. This is a bold and expressive blend that balances the best of both Pinotage and Shiraz varietals. Perfectly paired with any red meat whether at a BBQ for easy social sipping around the fire or ultimate enjoyment with a sizzling steak or sticky ribs. 

St Augustine

Established - 1948

In 1948, Douglas Green created his first and finest red blend and named it in honour of Africa’s first saint, St Augustine. This classic Cape blend of Shiraz, Pinotage and Cabernet Sauvignon bursts with soft mulberry, plums and black cherries on the nose, followed by delicately layered spicy oak and rich mocha. 

The Saints Wines

They’re not just your friends… They’re your funny, your crazy, your secret diary, your dreams, your reality check, your courage, your heart and you wouldn’t swap that for anything.
Our kind of Saints.

Tall Horse

Tall Horse wines are for those who like to enjoy a good glass of quality vino, without all the nose-in-the-airness that seems to follow other wines around. We’re all for wines that are easier to drink than they are to pronounce (honestly, what’s more useless than the “t” in Merlot).

Vineyard Friends

Great wine is made in the vineyard. Thats why we farm side by side with nature – not against it. After all, sustainable winemaking is a team effort. Made with an environmentally mindful approach, each Vineyard Friends wine is inspired by the unique creatures of the Cape and the special role they play in our winemaking story.
