Hermanuspietersfontein Wine Cellar

Wines of Sondagskloof

Nestled between the mountains some 50km’s from Cape Agulhas and a mere 25km’s across Walker Bay on a clear day – from Hermanus’ Old Harbour – the highest peak you’ll see across the bay is our farm… Constituting the heart of Sondagskloof – a cool climate area – where the average temperature is two degrees Celcius cooler than the rest of the Walker Bay district. Courtesy the naturally challenging topography, our vineyards reap the welcoming benefits of those cool Atlantic Ocean breezes that ultimately deliver an elegant range of European style wines for your enjoyment. The expression of altitude and exposure to the prevailing South Easterly winds initiates the distinctive microclimate bestowing upon Sondagskloof’s Sense of Place. Wine Maker: Wilhelm Pienaar
