Excelsior Estate was founded in 1859 and has been in the De Wet family for 5 generations. It is now owned by Freddie and his son Peter, and they are ably assisted by their wine maker Johan Stemmet and a dedicated team. Excelsior has over 220 hectares of vineyards planted to only noble varieties, including Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay. All vines are planted on the calcareous clay soils that make the wines of the Robertson region so special. It is our philosophy that great wine is made in the vineyards and perfected in the cellar.
