Saronsberg Cellar

A contemporary addition to the rich heritage of Tulbagh valley

Nestled at the foot of the mountain after which it is named, Saronsberg wine estate is a contemporary addition to the rich heritage of Tulbagh valley. It was formed late in 2002 when Waveren and Welgegund – two farm portions of the historic Twee Jonge Gezellen were purchased and combined to create a unique location for this progressive winery.

Two months later a fire swept through the valley, destroying a portion of Saronsberg’s vineyards and convincing all involved that initial plans to delay the construction of a cellar should be reconsidered.

Winemaker Dewaldt Heyns was appointed in early 2003 to guide the construction of a brand new cellar complex made up of a cutting-edge fermentation cellar, a rustic maturation cellar and a truly avant-garde tasting room. This centrepiece of Saronsberg’s operation was completed in December 2003, a matter of weeks before 25 January 2004, the day the maiden vintage began with the harvest of Saronsberg’s first Sauvignon Blanc.
