Hidden Valley Sauvignon Blanc Viognier
Hidden Valley has a rich history, and, combined with its commitment to “working with nature” is a proud member of the Biodiversity and Wine Initiative. Producing wines such as the Hidden Valley Sauvignon Blanc Viognier, the winery is a state of the art, gravity fed cellar built from stone, wood and glass – all purposely selected to present a contemporary yet functional structure.
Our vineyards, are situated on the northern slopes of the Helderberg Mountains in Stellenbosch and are planted on ancient, decomposed granite soils, consisting of deep fertile Oakleaf and Tukulu profiles. This wonderful soil (and the fact that we are 269m above sea level) together with the cool sea breeze result in a very unique and extremely sought after terroir.
The vineyards were planted in 2002 with the most recent being planted in 2016. The grapes used to produce the Hidden Valley Sauvignon Blanc Viognier and the other wines are carefully picked from the vineyards. This means that the latest planting material and most up to date planting methods were used. The vineyards were planted with great care and all trellised on a double Perold system.
The cellar is surrounded by vineyards, olive groves, almond orchards and fynbos gardens, each occupying an integral part of the farms’ ecosystem.
