There is a strong tradition in The Berrio vineyards near the southernmost tip of Africa. Each day they honour the wind. The cooling effects of the winds that blow in on three sides allow the grapes to spend more time on the vine. And more time on the vine - plus creative nurturing in the cellar – means a wine of greater intensity and layered complexity in the glass. It is these cool maritime winds that are giving this very special corner of the world the reputation of producing captivating wines that become fuller, more rounded and complex with each vintage. Enjoy these special wines in the new wine-tasting room, completely refurbished in 2008.

Did You Know...? It was the blessing of these same winds which propelled The Berrio, a plucky caravel in Vasco da Gama’s expeditionary, to lead the way around Cape Agulhas early in 1497 on one of the most challenging sea crossings of the time.
