Silverthorn Wines is a small estate of 10.8 hectares, beautifully positioned on the banks of the Breede River in the Robertson Valley. The wonder of the farm lies in its extraordinary terroir, with a high concentration of limestone running through the predominant shale soils & its ready access to good water. Hot summers & cold winters also create optimal conditions for our vines.
Silverthorn Wines is among only a handful of producers who have dedicated their expertise solely to the production of this elegant style of wine. We are a proud member of the Cap Classique Association, an independent organisation which collectively supports and markets Cap Classique wines, and of course a member of the prestigious Cape Winemakers Guild. Silverthorn’s terroir, with its rocky, lime-rich, shale soils similar to the famous Champagne soils in France coupled with our mature Chardonnay vineyards ensure Silverthorn’s entry into the world of sparkling wine.
Our primary aim is to continue to produce some of the finest South African sparkling wines.
