OUR PHILOSOPHY

It is the combination of power and elegance which influences the whole winemaking process at Napier Vineyards.

The rich soil diversity around Napier Vineyards allows the perfect combination of grape variety and terroir. All work in the vineyards is designed to promote the individual characteristics of our grape varieties and create a good balance in the wine.

This passion for the wine and the region can be tasted. Four authentic product lines reflect the diversity of South Africa: Our Lion Creek wines for each day, our internationally inspired Single Vineyard wines, our Blend Red Medallion and the Ultra Premium products under the Sir George label.

Careful use of old and new barrique barrels supports the finesse and complexity of all our wines.

My goal is to craft a range of premium wines, which rank with the world's best,
while reflecting the soils of the small valley where Napier is located.
In keeping with this philosophy, all grapes are grown on the farm,
they are hand tended, hand harvested and hand vinified.
