Pulpit Rock Winery

A state-of-the-art cellar on the foothills of the Kasteelberg Mountain

Back in the mid-sixteen hundreds, after an extremely long and tiring trek from the Cape of Good Hope, Pieter Cruythoff and his party stood atop the Bothmanskloof pass and surveyed for the first time, a valley of rich wonderment and beauty. Many followed in the years to come; to settle, to farm, to live and laugh – to soak in the glorious views and introduce added quality into their lives. One such early farming family was the Brinks, now owners of the latest addition to the Riebeek Valley’s acclaimed wineries, Pulpit Rock.

The state-of-the-art cellars of Pulpit Rock are situated on the foothills of the Kasteelberg Mountain – the “pulpit” being a well known piece of the craggy background of these lands. There are two vast barrel maturation cellars including a 1,000 ton overall production capacity.

Pulpit Rock Winery offers visitors informal tours in the pressing and maturing cellars. The winery also boasts an a-la-carte restaurant with beautiful views of the Valley.
