Ladismith Cellar was established in 1939 and at first it distilled only spirits. Just over forty years down the line it bottled its first own-label wines in 1971.
Synonymous with Ladismith is Towerkop (“Magic Mountain”), that shelters the town – the logical choice for the cellar’s flagship label. It also speaks of our deep-rootedness in Ladismith and Kleine Karoo-winemaking since the cellar began operating independently in 1939.
At the beginning of 2005, the cellar joined forces with the neighbouring Barrydale Cellar and formed Southern Cape Vineyards, an umbrella company, to share and exchange technology and capacity to make the most – and the best – of the resources available to them.
