About the Winery

Diemersfontein has belonged to the Sonnenberg family for 3 generations, dating back to the early 1940s. David’s grandfather, Max, bought the 183-hectare farm, which lies in the shadow of the majestic Hawekwa Mountains and boasts a panoramic view of both Du Toit’s Kloof and Bains’ Kloof mountain ranges.

Winemaking process

Grapes were harvested at optimum ripeness levels and vinified separately. The Shiraz was matured in 3rd and 4th fill French oak barrels and the Pinotage on French oak staves for 12 months. After a few samples blends, the perfect combination Shiraz and Pinotage were found to express both characters.
