Nederburg is winery of the year for 2017
“We are thrilled! Earning the title of Platter’s 2017 Winery of the Year is a true acknowledgment of the collective efforts of the winegrowing and winemaking team in producing consistently delicious, well-balanced wines of excellence," said Cellermaster Andrea Freeborough.
Freeborough works with Natasha Boks, who makes the white wines under her direction, and Samuel Viljoen, who makes the reds, while Bennie Liebenberg is responsible for the vineyards supplying Nederburg. Nederburg winery dates back to 1791, where Philippus Wolvaart had purchased 5600 acres of farmland. Nowadays, this popular winery in Paarl is visited regularly by local and international visitors.
Nederburg has been shortlisted by the judges of the 2016 International Wine & Spirit Competition (IWSC) as South African Producer of the Year.
