Ridgeback wines is a family owned medium sized wine estate located in the heart of the Cape Winelands just outside of Paarl towards the Swartland. Settled at the foothills of the Paarl Mountain, Ridgeback focuses on producing high quality red and white wines. All our grapes are hand harvested with a minimalistic approach to wine making ensuring only the highest quality wines get made. The vineyard is named after the Rhodesian Ridgeback dog, which originated in Southern Africa, and that are kept on the farm. The pedigree, character and stature of these impressive lion-hunters are reflected in the wines.
