About the wine maker
Nederburg is South Africa’s most decorated name in wine, with more prizes and accolades than any other winery in South Africa. In 2012, Nederburg won the International Wine & Spirit Competition South African Wine Producer of the Year trophy. At the 2014 Decanter World Wine Awards, the Nederburg Noble Late Harvest 2013 won the trophy for the best South African sweet wine over £15.
The first vineyards were planted not long after the original house had been built by German immigrants in 1791; the beautiful manor house, a national monument, soon followed in 1800. Throughout its history, Nederburg has maintained strong links with Germany and Eastern Europe and pioneered many vineyard and winery methods and techniques still widely used today in South Africa.
In 2011, Nederburg was granted Biodiversity & Wine Initiative (BWI) membership as a result of the eco-sustainability projects undertaken by its grape-growing farms. Membership is earned by activities that support local indigenous habitat conservation as well as global initiatives. They are also WIETA accredited: a multi-stakeholder, non-profit voluntary organisation which actively promotes ethical trade in the wine industry value chain through training, technical assessment and audits to assess members' compliance with its code of good practice.
