WELCOME TO

CALITZDORP CELLAR HAS BEEN AWARDED
CHAMPION COOPERATIVE WINERY OF THE LITTLE KAROO TWICE

HERITAGE

Calitzdorp Cellar has produced a number of award winning white, red and fortified wines since 1928.

The Calitzdorp area is well-known for its fortified wines; primarily Cape Port, and is worth a stop along the world’s longest wine route. We invite you to browse our website and join us for tastings at our cellar.

OUR WINEMAKER

Danie van der Westhuizen

Danie van der Westhuizen was born in 1981 and grew up in Montagu. His career as winemaker took him from Montagu to Paarl, Kakamas and Tulbagh before joing Calitzdorp Cellar in December 2017.
Danie is married to Elsabe and they have two daughters. He sums-up winemaking in three words:

Patience, patience, patience.

Our Wines

In the last 13 years, cellar production increased from 2000 tons to 5000 tons.

Our first red wines were made from Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Shiraz, Pinotage, Tinta Barocca, Touriga Nacional, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc were planted in the early nineties.

The Cellar has been awarded Champion Cooperative Winery of the Little Karoo twice and performs very well at The SA Young Wine Show as well as the Veritas Competition. Our Hanepoot and Cape Port have been classed SA Champions at the SA Young Wine Show and awarded with the prestigious Etchell (Hanepoot) and (Port) trophies.
