A collaboration of like-minded producers who share a common vision of creating wines from specific vineyard sites across the Cape Winelands. The focus is on crafting wines which reveal the typicity of each site, rather than the simple manufacturing of commercial styles. Wines are exclusively produced from:
NO Wine of Origin Western Cape, Coastal Region or Cape Town will form part of our project.
Our members are made up of a collection of small independent producers together with single family generation winemakers producing wine from their respective estates. We believe that through Cape Site Specific we can start to educate, inform and change perceptions of the national and international Trade, Media and consumers on the significance of our diversity within our respective appellations.
Although all producers don’t necessarily believe in all four aspects of terroir, we agree that it has an influence on the character and identity of our wines which cannot be duplicated or imitated somewhere else. We believe in wines with a fingerprint, with an identity and a sense of place!
The initiative was launched at Cape Wine 2018 with great success and 2019 will see a growth in our membership with more producers joining.
Our long term strategy is to introduce the concept of Cape Site Specific to the international market place with considerable emphasis on maintaining our collaborative efforts and value creation for both business and consumer.
