Founded in 1991 by Emil and Sonette den Dulk, the winery De Toren is located in the South African province of Western Cape, not far from the town of Stellenbosch.
De Toren Winery - "There is no shortcut to perfection"
Its land area of initially 7 hectares was expanded by 17 hectares two years after its foundation. On the small vineyard area Emil and Sonette grow since then mainly the Bordeaux varieties
- Cabernet Sauvignon
- Cabernet Franc
- Malbec and
- Petit Verdot.
Quality instead of quantity
The low yield does not detract from the reputation of the winery. On the contrary, it would take De Toren about 15 years to produce the amount of wine that large wine producers produce in one day, but the result is an absolute quality product and testifies to the passion and perfection that the owners put into their work.
Wines of character from De Toren
Elegant, rich in nuances and silky smooth - this is how the wines that are produced here are described. The first-class character of the wines is no coincidence. All grapes that have ripened on the estate, which is located on the Polkadraai Hills, are harvested by hand in the first two hours after the sun has set and then checked for 23 criteria. Only when they meet these can they be used for De Toren's wines. Out come, for example, De Toren "Fusion V", which was first presented to the wine market in 1999 and was named the best Bordeaux in South Africa in 2016.
