Excelsior is a winery in Ashton in the Robertson region of South Africa that has been in the De Wet family since 1870. Freddie and son Peter De Wet currently oversee operations. The 220 ha of vines are dedicated to international varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Merlot, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. The grapes are hand picked and cultivated using a minimal amount of chemicals. The wines are produced as full-bodied, intense expressions of the varietals.
