PUBLIC PROFILE

Who are we?

The Beyerskloof philosophy is to give a truthful expression of the God given talents we received and doing everything in our ability to offer a memorable, world-class wine experience to all in order to be the South African winery of choice. Beyer Truter’s original search for land was focused on one thing only: finding the best soils to produce a Cabernet Sauvignon-based wine. Beyerskloof’s shallow, gravely soil is very similar to that of Bordeaux. The shallowness of the soil led Beyers to plant almost 5 000 vines per hectare to optimise the small pocket of land. The vines are planted with 20 000 Cabernet Sauvignon vines and 5 000 Merlot vines. They are planted north to south on a five wire trellis system. This is traditionally the best way to plant Cabernet Sauvignon. It allows the maximum hours of sunshine which is important for the formation of the higher sugar levels that give the Beyerskloof wines their ripe, fruity quality.
