Nederburg is South Africa’s leading and recognized name in wine, winner of more international and domestic awards than any other in the country. Some of these include most successful South African producer at the International Wine & Spirit Competition, Platter’s South African Wine Guide ‘Winery of the Year’, and Diners Club ‘Winemaker of the Year’, amongst others. In addition to this, Nederburg was also announced the top performer in Winemag.co.za’s 10-Year-Old Wine Report of 2019, with seven of its 2009 vintage wines rated 90+ points.

The brand’s universal appeal lies in Nederburg’s ability to make characteristically prepared wines with fruit-rich flavors. Their patent combination of elegance and fruit is evident in all their wines.

Niël Groenewald, MD of Nederburg says: “What an honour for Nederburg to be featured, for a fourth time in a row, in this esteemed international list of top global wine brands! We are delighted by this news and especially thankful to our viticulture and winemaking teams for their zealous focus on innovation, not merely for the sake of newness but to see how they can continually improve what they do. They continue to explore new wine growing areas, plant new vines, and trial new cultivars, blends and techniques to maintain Nederburg’s name as the byword in South African wine excellence. It’s their adventurous spirit and sense of curiosity that drives them to keep discovering and experimenting.”

Arun Kumar, Cofounder Aspri Spiritssays“We are proud to have Nederburg Winesin our portfolio of fine wines.” It is indeed an honour for Nederburg to be amongst the top 50 admired brands in the wine world.

With its growing popularity, Nederburg’s achievement at the 47th position puts the company portfolio amongst some of the other leading luminaries on the list like Australia’s Penfolds, Spain’s Torres, Chile’s Concho Y Toro and French icon M. Chapoutier.

Spanning over more than 200 years, Nederburg’s tradition of winemaking and rich history contributes for its success in the South African wine markets. Cellar-master Andrea Freeborough leads the wine making team there.

A producer of specialty and popular wines, the winery grows its own grapes but also sources some of its fruits from their vast database of supplier growers across the Cape.
