KONKELBERG LIFESTYLE WINES

The Story of Konkelberg Wines

During the early days of settlement in the Cape, The Vereenigde Oost-Indische Compagnie prohibited farmers from trading with anyone other than the ‘Compagnie’. Therefore when the ‘vrijburgers’ and local tribesmen wanted to do business, they had to go to a secluded area in the mountain-range to trade without interference.

This corner was where Stellenbosch Mountain and Helderberg joined, and so it became known as ‘Konkelberg’ – The joining of two mountains.

There’s a growing demand for wines that are affordable, bright and light; for the young and fun. Enjoy our Konkelberg Lifestyle Wines with friends and family, and experience the vibrant tastes of the Konkelberg Vineyard Collection.

Hand Sorted

Fermented with wild yeast, without the use of enzymes or fining agents. Matured in French oak.

Perfectly Placed

This vineyard enjoys refreshingly cool breezes from False Bay during the day and cool night air flowing down from the mountain, resulting in even ripening of the berries and good natural acidity.

Harvested by hand in the early morning in small picking bins to ensure that only the perfect grapes reach the cellar. This wine is made in a holistic and natural way, to honor its roots and history.
