Wine Tasting at Alto Wine Estate

Situated high on the slopes of the imposing Helderberg Mountain in the Stellenbosch Winelands, you will find South Africa’s oldest red wine estate. The trellised vineyards cling to the high granite slopes that rise from 100 to 500 metres above sea level, which are ideal for the cultivation of red grape varietals.

Known for our impressive collection of classically-styled reds, Alto Wine Estate now offers a delicious combination of our wines teamed up with home-made pâtés. For the inquisitive, our guests are free to take a stroll through the impressive barrel cellar. While all Alto wines are available from wine retailers and leading supermarkets, nothing quite compares to a visit to this exquisite farm.
