Cultivation and Ripening Belong Together at Dornier
As well as their traditional techniques, Dornier achieves high quality wine by not separating between wine growing and wine cellar. The same people work in both areas and care for the wine during its whole ripening and maturing process.
The Winery Dornier in an Excellent Location
Dornier is constituted of two wineries, the Keerweder and the Homestead farm. Both belong to the oldest wineries in South Africa and can look back on a long and glorious tradition. The wine slopes are located on red and yellow granite soils which feature good moisture and cool the vines. The fresh Atlantic breeze also ensures that the grapes do not ripen too quickly. The results are wines of a special richness.
The Extraordinary Architecture of Dornier
Dornier's architecture encompasses several centuries. The old barn originates from the 18th century and has its own, very special charm. The homestead is from the late 19th century, whilst the modern cellar technology can be clearly classified as 21st century. Many visitors of Dornier can see the wines reflected in the special architecture: elegant, clean yet complex.
