Backsberg - Excellent Location for Excellent Wine
Backsberg is located between the South African regions Paarl and Stellenbosch. The winery benefits from the unique terroir and the excellent climatic conditions. In the winter, the rich rainfall makes sure that the vines grow healthy and strongly, whilst the sun ripens the grapes in the summer. This is how the winemakers of Backsberg can produce a constant high quality. Additionally, the winemakers apply an unusual harvesting method. No single ripe grape is picked, but the entire vine when it is ripe. With this holistic and sustainable approach of wine growing, Backsberg took a permanent place in the league of the top wineries of South Africa.
