Passion, respect, ethics, authenticity, terroir...these are a few words that drive Eben Sadie. In a secluded area, some 10 km gravel road away from Malmesbury lies the Sadie Family wine estate. Don't expect a multi-million rand complex, tourists buses or any other spas...This is a winery! Eben Sadie, who hates the word "winemaker", is responsible here for some of the most interesting wines you can find in South Africa. From its Columella, Palladius to his more recent Ouwingerdreeks serie, you will meet a man (if you're lucky, he tends to be busy...) who wants to show the real expression of the terroir. No machines, no automation here. Only handwork and gravity! And amazing wines!

Did You Know...? Die Ouwingerdreeks (old bush vine) serie was created to raise awareness of the old vineyards of the Cape and also display the amazing wines that can be produced from these historic parcels.
