Alex Nel the brewmaster at Cederberg explains more about Boggom and Voertsek

Known for their appearances in the work of C.Louis Leipoldt and later the music of David Kramer, Boggom and Voertsek were two nomads who lived life without limits and bowed to no rules but their own. Stricken with wanderlust and an unquenchable thirst, these two rogues traveled the barren plains of the Cederberg region. BOGGOM BLONDE ALE forms the more casual side of the duo with Boggom’s relaxed attitude making him the more approachable half of the iconic pair. VOERTSEK INDIA PALE ALE follows the mantra of living fast and dying young. Voertsek forms the wilder side of the legendary duo.

"The old man" left the building 'specially for thisNeil Groenewald and Tammy Almacin of sponsor Standard Bank - South Africa handed over cheque of R25000 to first time winner Cederberg Wines
Marketing manager Pieter Arno Du Toit said that the money will be used to help create a clinic to service the surrounding isolated communities, “We envisage that this clinic will become a mothership, from which satellite clinics will be run. It’s a pilot project that will be run in conjunction with the Western Cape Health Department and the Waitrose Foundation and we’re excited about the possibilities for really changing lives from a health and a social point of view.”

During the 2006 harvest David decided it was time to take on a "student".
We call them interns - which to a certain extent is wrong because they have their degree in their hands and they come here for a full blown experience after their studies.
For six to eight months they move to our farm and work in the cellar, the vineyard, the tasting room, the dirty laundry ...
Name it! They do it!
Today we look back at where and who they are - and we are proud.
We remember - mostly with joy:
2006 Morne Landman
2009 Alessandro Nel & Tammy Turck (and look what happened!)
2010 Tess Deacon & Theo Truyts
2011 Martin Lamprecht & Jaco Van Der Watt
2013 Luzaan du Pisanie
2014 Thinus Neethling & Martin Isit Fourie
2015 Anchor van Wyk & Kiara Scott (our 1st protégé)
2016 Jean Nel & Maryna Huysamen (our 2nd protégé)
2017 Timothy Whitfield & Elouise Kotze (our 3rd protégé)

Ta daaa!!

A harvest without our permanent team, is unthinkable!
Every day we do it, they get on with "it": those grapes that will be a bottle of wine somewhere at a dinner table in Hong Kong, North Carolina, Mellville, Hamburg, Kroonstad, Endhoven, Springbok ....

We see more and more young people that come to harvest and work in our Cellar - from all over the world: no rules, no boundries. We love being exposed to their ways and thoughts. This year harvest brought us (from left to right) Andrea Pérez Castillo from Mexico; Sam Wilson from Toronto, Canada and Juan Esteban Pina from Argentina. We are excited and honored by their visit and helping us to make 2018 a great vintage.
To take on the isolated Cederberg wine making team takes some doing.

We salute you.

We call them "the Harvest group". The come from all over - each year in March. They stay four nights and they learn about wine: everything about wine.

This is the first of a few images of HARVEST 2018. Harvest started on the 26th of January when we picked a tiny bit of Chard for our MCC. For the next few days it was quiet and then, on the 5th of February, more Chard. It was only on the 8th that the first Sauvignon Blanc arrived.

In front: Paul (Meridian: Gauteng). Behind Paul - ltr: Pieter (Cederberg - the driver); Wouter (Meridian - Cape Town), Prosper (Norman Goodfellows - Cape Town), Michelle (Square Cafe - Convention Centre: Canal Walk); Aaron (Foxcroft Restaurant - Cape Town); Kobus and Damian (Meridian - Gauteng) and Fabien - our guest from Malta - a sommelier

Extreme growing conditions no obstacle for ‘wines with altitude’

July 4, 2017

Article from A VINE TIME by Sam Venter WINEMAKER David Nieuwoudt seems to be a man who likes extremes. Not content with making wine at South Africa’s highest vineyards in the rugged Cederberg mountains and in the most southerly in Elim near Cape Agulhas, he also travels half-way around the world to make wine at the foot of the Andes […]
