HOW IT WORKS
For years, families and friends have come together to enjoy our wines – either on the farm at the Cederberg Cellar or under the stars at Sanddrif, or in their own spaces all around the globe.
Now we have formed the Cederberg Circle – an inner circle of likeminded wine lovers – for those who know our wines, or still have that treat in store.
Here at Cederberg Wines our daily tasks closely follow the seasons, from winter when the vineyards rest and are pruned, to the first buds of spring; the berries filling out in the summer heat, leading to the harvest and the falling leaves of autumn.
To honour this cycle of life, members of the Cederberg Circle will receive a mystery box of wine at the start of each season, four times per calendar year. These wines (plus the occasional surprise) will be personally selected from the current Cederberg, Longaví and Ghost Corner ranges by winemaker and owner David Nieuwoudt and the Cederberg wine-making team. The contents of each box will reflect that particular season. It will always be a mystery, and always a delight.
Members of the Cederberg Circle will also enjoy other benefits, among others free wine tasting at the Cederberg Cellar (booking essential) and free delivery of any additional orders (see BENEFITS below).

Yes, the cost is R1. This R1 transaction is needed to assign a ‘token’ to your debit or credit card. This process is called the ‘tokenisation’ of a card and is required by PayGate, the payment gateway we use. The ‘token’ is a unique code assigned to the card. This code, instead of the card number, is used to process future transactions. It is a safe process and used by many institutions and companies for recurring online payments.
