Bergkelder Wine Shop - Distell
Inspired by nature and the surrounding verdant countryside of Stellenbosch, Die Bergkelder is home to the esteemed Fleur Du Cap wines. Its name meaning “cellar in the mountan” in Afrikaans, these superb, handcrafted vintages are created by a dedicated team that are well-versed in capturing the high quality of the region’s grapes.
As a result of their expert knowledge, they brilliantly utilise the temperate climate of the Cape which is combined with special care in the area’s vineyards and cellars. A tour of Bergkelder includes the maturation cellar, with its 20 000 oak casks ensuring a fine balance of fruit and flavours. You’ll cross over a suspension bridge into the cellar where wine tasting takes place within the alcoves.
The shop also offers international and local award-winning wines and brandies, over 200 to be exact. A selection of souvenirs such as magnums, openers and small barrels are also for purchase. You’ll also want to stop by Die Bergkelder Wine Museum, a trip into the past found in a beautifully-lit room with a floor littered with lovingly preserved artefacts from a time long passed.
