Established in 1698, Altydgedacht Estate is a family farm where long standing traditions and modern methods blend to create wines of quality and character. Altydgedacht is one of the historic farms established on the fertile slopes of the Tygerberg and has been in the Parker family since 1852. Brothers John and Oliver use the varied soils, slopes and microclimates to grow high quality grapes from suitable noble varieties. Winemaker Oliver produces wines of distinctive character and strong varietal flavour, typical of the renowned Durbanville area.
