History of the Wine

The wine is bottled each year in July or August – after an oaky immersion for just five months. It’s ready very soon thereafter – and although it will last longer – it’s at its best in the first year or two. But generally its fans don’t wait that long.
Each year they taste some vintage variation, and the fans argue about their favourites and the merits of each. But we will always maintain the essential features of the wine – the consistency that comes from using the highest quality grapes from the Wellington region and the same fermentation and oak maturation procedures each year.

Its had quite a reception across its now ten vintages – starting off immediately in the ABSA Top Ten – it has won Trophy at the Michelangelo International Wine Trophy for best Pinotage, silver at the Wine Style Asia, Silver in Nova Scotia, Michelangelo Gold for the 2006. But almost best of all – in April 2007, Neil Pendock christened it “The People’s Pinotage” after his consumer survey in the South African Sunday Times found that it was the “overwhelming favourite” of all pinotages. Since then, the people have spoken again by voting it “The Best Red Wine on Show” at Winex in Cape Town and Johannesburg in 2008/9/10.
Diemersfontein Pinotage is at present available in nineteen countries and in South Africa.

We look forward to seeing you at this award winning event!
