Wines from South Africa


Perdeberg Winery

Established in 1941, Perdeberg Winery is a vineyard management and production operation with some 10,000 acres of vineyard under management along with a technologically current production facility.

In the mid-1950s Perdeberg Winery joined an elite group of producers with the appointment of Joseph Huskisson as winemaker along with a full-time viticulturist and the implementation of both innovative viticultural and winemaking practices. In the ensuing years the winery gained a reputation for the production of outstanding Chenin Blanc and Pinotage.

Today, Perdeberg offers a broad range of bottled wines from extreme value everyday products to small volume, single vineyard handcrafted wines.
