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

The Sauvignon Blanc grapes were harvested early in the morning. Grapes were destemmed, crushed and the juice was cold fermented in tanks to preserve the fruit flavours. After about 20 days of fermentation, the wine was racked off its gross lees. After 3 months the wine was prepared for bottling.
