Seven Springs Vineyard is a premium wine producer, situated on the R320 Hemel-en-Aarde Valley road, between the seaside town of Hermanus and the Spa Town of Caledon, in the picturesque Western Cape, South Africa.
The vineyard nestles between Shaws Mountain to the north and the Teslaarsdal Mountain Range to the south, with Walker Bay and the Atlantic Ocean beyond these mountains. It is this oceanic influence, coupled with the shale derived soils, known locally as Bokkeveld Shale, that gives their vines the potential to produce exceptional grapes from both north and south facing vineyards.
Noble varieties, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah and Pinot Noir, have been planted to express the full potential of each cultivar. Tim and Vaughan Pearson purchased the land in 2006 and commenced in the vast task of planting this promising but yet to be planted piece of land. With the help of their team, Seven Springs is making big strides in a region that produces some of the best wines throughout South Africa.
Peter Davison (Vineyard Manager) and Riana van der Merwe (Winemaker to 2018) have got plenty of acclaim for this lovely vineyard and its beautifully crafted wines. The winemaking duties has now been taken over by Augustus Dale who is adding his own style to the exceptional Seven Springs wines.
Born in the UK, Augustus Dale has many years of experience in the wine business, having made wines in both France (Burgundy) and South Africa. He brings his passion for cool climate Burgundian varietals to Seven Springs, with an emphasis on best practice in vineyard.
