You’ll find Waverley Hills Estate at the foothills of the breathtaking Witzenberg Mountain Range in the Western Cape. Their vineyards in this pristine fynbos conservancy area are irrigated with pure mountain spring water and their wines have a unique herbaceous character due to the fynbos influence. Their organic wines contain 50% less sulphur than conventional wines. They are concerned with long-term sustainability instead of quick fixes.
Their olives and wine are certified organic by SGS, which means that no pesticides, no fungicides, no herbicides and no chemical fertilizers are used in their production process. They fertilise with composts and manures, use the wisdom of companion planting, as well as natural pest control such as ducks to manage their grape crops. Wild indigenous vegetation amongst their vineyards creates a wealth of biodiversity in the ecosystem. They are part of the Biodiversity and Wine Initiative and are the first organic wine farm to reach BWI champion status.
