Overgaauw, a wine estate of distinction in the Stellenbosch Kloof, was founded by Abraham van Velden in 1905 on land owned by his family since 1783. For the past century the Van Veldens have done pioneering work and produced acclaimed wines on Overgaauw, one of the oldest family run estates in the area. The estate’s 70ha of south facing vineyards are planted on deep weathered granite soils, cooled by sea breezes from False Bay, provide the ideal meso climate for the cultivation of noble grape varieties. Through the implementation of meticulous viticultural practices, including varietal site selection and low yields, fourth generation winemaker David van Velden ensures that only the very best grapes are made available for his Overgaauw wines. These are vinified in the renovated and expanded old cellar, fusing modern winemaking techniques with 100 years of experience. Very few things remain exceptional for four generations, but Overgaauw’s wines have done just that; you can experience David’s heritage and passion in every one of his Overgaauw and Shepherd’s Cottage wines. A proud family tradition of producing quality wines in one of the most beautiful settings in the Cape makes Overgaauw Wine Estate, with its unique Cape Victorian Cellar door well worth the visit.
