Far up the west coast...

About 3 and a half hours drive north of Cape Town, lies an open bay of white sand strewn with black mussels and kelp, with the icy waters of the Atlantic beating the shore. This is Donkiesbaai, where my family have holidayed for four generations, since 1873.

This unassuming spot lends its name to our adventurous range of wines from the Piekenierskloof. The wine was made with the cuisine of the west coast in mind. Crayfish, Harders, and a cold glass of wine is part of the history that is Donkiesbaai.

With this wine

we raise a glass

to family & friendships.

The west coast is a place that invigorates one’s soul, understanding and appreciation of the simple things in life. For many it is a harsh, desert-like unknown frontier, but for those who have experienced its energy and unspoilt beauty, it becomes a life-enriching place.

The grapes for these wines come from the unassuming region of Piekenierskloof, which lies about 80km inland from the coast. Unirrigated bush vines are planted in deep sandy soils. Elevated sites have a warm climate with cooling evening winds. The resulting wines offer complexity and finesse in an approachable style.
