About Zorgvliet :
"This is a small 200,000-bottle winery in Banghoek, on the Helshoogte Pass between Stellenbosch and Franschhoek. It’s pronounced ‘Sorg-fleet’, which roughly translates to 'no worries, and that sentiment carries itself through all they do.
Winemaker Bernard Le Roux is a young and upcoming talent who is passionate about the estate’s vineyards as well as its cellar (not always a given for winemakers!). Grapes are grown on the steep slopes of the Simonsberg Mountain in vineyards that are among the highest in Stellenbosch. The estate wines are from site-specific single vineyards and are elegant expressions of this unique mountain terroir, all crafted in the Zorgvliet cellar, one of the most technologically advanced cellars in South Africa."
