ZORGVLIET (pronounced SORG-fleet, which roughly translates to 'no worries') is a small 200,000 bottle winery in Banghoek, on the Helshoogte Pass between Stellenbosch and Franschoek. This stunning estate that dates back to 1799, specialises in bordelaise varietals and is owned by Stephan van der Merwe and his family. 'Elegance in Wine' is the Zorgvliet philosophy, a sentiment fiercely supported by their head winemaker Bernard Le Roux, a young and upcoming talent who is passionate about vineyard quality and care. Grapes are grown on the steep slopes of the Simonsberg Mountain in vineyards that are amongst the highest in Stellenbosch. The estate wines are from site-specific single vineyards and are elegant expressions of this unique mountain terroir. The wines are crafted in the Zorgvliet cellar which today is still one of the most technologically advanced cellars in South Africa.
