Excelsior Estate is located in Robertson and has been owned by the De Wet family since 1859. The estate has had various incarnations, including ostrich farming and racehorse rearing, but has always been used for vine growing. Freddie De Wet and his sons, Peter and Jacques, now run the 230 hectare estate that is focused on the ‘big five’ varieties: Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz. Robertson is located 100 kilometres east of Cape Town, where, although the climate is hotter, it is moderated by sea breezes and the Breede River.
