Alive with flair
Exploring without limitations
Die Bergkelder, home to Fleur du Cap wines, has long distinguished itself as one of the wine industry’s important innovators, with the first underground bottle maturation cellar established in 1968. The cellar, cut deep into the Papegaaiberg in Stellenbosch, was the first to mature wine in small, new French oak casks and established classic noble grape varieties in the vineyards of the Western Cape.
Crafted to allow the full expression of the grapes from selected vineyard sites across the Western Cape, the range of Fleur du Cap wines display true varietal character with great complexity and abundant fruit.
Fleur du Cap’s wines are not constrained to a single farm, vineyard or climate. Selecting the finest grapes from across the Western Cape, the winemaking team unlocks the natural expression from pockets of vines in diverse locations selected for their unique terroir and profile.
The vineyards are all situated in the Cape Floral Kingdom, one of only six such plant kingdoms in the world and home to some 9,600 species. It might be the smallest but is certainly the richest, boasting more floral species than the whole of the northern hemisphere.
The team use a hands-on, traditional winemaking approach, eschewing modern filtration techniques to preserve the natural colour, flavour and character of the grapes.
