“WE BELIEVE THAT QUALITY AND BEAUTY IN WINE COME FROM THE VINEYARD. WE’RE HOPING TO FIND THE VOICE OF THE LAND, NOT THE MARK OF THE WINEMAKER.”
Alheit Vineyards is a family business started in 2010 by husband and wife team Chris and Suzaan Alheit. They met at Stellenbosch University, fell in love, travelled the world together, got married, then travelled some more. Eventually they settled on Hemelrand farm close to Hermanus and started their project.
In the vineyards’ much attention is payed to the farming, with an emphasis on careful pruning and suckering, diligent canopy work, and hand hoeing. They like to encourage healthy soil by cover cropping, mulching, and manuring. All their grapes are handpicked into small lug boxes and transported with care by the winemaker himself to their winery.
They work closely with their growers.
They also have their own farm, Broom Ridge, on the Paardeberg, for which they are fully responsible.
