Saxenburg Wines

The wines may be polished in the wood, but it is the grapes that lend their special qualities.

Officially proclaimed in 1693, Saxenburg is one of the oldest farms in South Africa.

Thanks to the combination of the perfect natural conditions and a highly skilled and driven team, our wines have won the highest praise, not only in South Africa, but around the rest of the world.

The terroir at Saxenburg is perfectly suited to Shiraz and it is thanks to this varietal that Saxenburg has become a prominent South African export. Thanks to our wine maker’s belief that exceptional wines are made on the vine, we practise a well-managed system of summer pruning to keep yields low. With fewer bunches left, grapes mature into a finer quality and less craft is required in the cellar.
