Ridgeback winery is situated on the northern slopes of the Paarl Mountains, this quiet corner of Paarl provides ideal growing conditions for the vineyards which give our premium brand Ridgeback and second label Vansha their distinctive characteristic flavours.
Our distinctive wines reflect the character and individuality of the Rhodesian Ridgeback dog – the hallmark of our brand. The Rhodesian Ridgeback is native to South Africa. Its history can be traced to the Cape Colony of Southern Africa where the early pioneers used them for lion hunting.
The vineyards include the following red varieties – Shiraz, Merlot, Cabernet, Cabernet Franc, Mourvèdre, Petit Verdot and Grenache; the white varieties include Sauvignon Blanc and Viognier.
A modern winery designed to handle 200 tons has been built, and with it, an exclusive wine tasting centre. A small restaurant and four star Guest House complete the overall structure of Vansha Farming.
