Asara – terroir-specific wines from Stellenbosch

The Asara wine estate is situated in the heart of Stellenbosch. When it passed into the ownership of the Rahmann family in 2001, it experienced a renaissance, as the new owners recognised the potential that lay dormant in the estate. Today, Asara stands for good food and fine wines that perfectly express their terroir on the Hottentot and Stellenbosch Mountains with the different slopes and altitudes.

Michiel du Toit

Michiel du Toit grew up in Sommerset West and actually wanted to become a dentist. However, visits to his grandfather's farm in Tulbagh sparked his interest in agriculture and in his second year at Stellenbosch University he became fascinated with viticulture – graduating top of his class at Elsenburg College for Agriculture. His career as a winemaker started in Darling and took him to Paarl before Michiel joined Asara. In his work as a winemaker, it is important for him to be hands-on in the vineyard and to intervene as little as possible in the cellar, so that the fruit and terroir of the wines can fully develop in each bottle.

Asara: Fine South African wines from Stellenbosch

When entrepreneur and wine lover Markus Rahmann bought Asara in the heart of Stellenbosch in 2001, a new era began for the winery, whose tradition dates back to 1691. Over the past two decades, it has developed into a place where good food and fine South African premium wines take centre stage. On about one hundred hectares of vineyards, mainly red grape varieties are cultivated, from which excellent red wine is produced. However, those who prefer white wine will also find what they are looking for in Asara's extensive portfolio.

Asara wines for red and white wine fans

South Africa's national grape Pinotage is found in every range of the winery – from the Vineyard Collection to the Terroir and Speciality Range. In the Cape Fusion Red Blend, it is part of a Cape Blend, a red wine blend with a high Pinotage percentage. One of the flagship wines called The Bell Tower, on the other hand, is a classic red wine blend of the grape varieties Cabernet SauvignonCabernet FrancMerlotPetit Verdot and Malbec. Incidentally, the name The Bell Tower goes back to Asara's trademark: a bell tower, which is located on the grounds of the winery and is also part of the Asara logo. On about thirty percent of the vineyard area, ViognierChenin BlancChardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc are vinified into single-varietal white wines or blends such as the Cape White Blend of the Terroir Range.

Terroir-specific wines from Asara

Sustainable farming plays an important role in winemaking, Asara has been awarded Champion status by the Biodiversity & Wine Initiative (BWI) for its commitment to conservation. Minimal intervention takes place in the wine cellar so that each Asara wine can express its terroir to the best of its ability. Those visiting the winery can see this for themselves in the Tasting Room. The luxurious hotel and spa area invite you to stay longer and take a break from everyday life – and are the ideal starting point to explore the Stellenbosch region and enjoy the excellent wines.
