Vineyard - Stellenbosch - Stellenbosch - Stellenbosch - South Africa
Dornier Wines is located on two estates, both with long traditions. The history of Keerweder goes back to 1694, when it was acquired by Jac van Dyk. The Homestead farm includes a historic Sir Herbert Baker homestead and one of the oldest wine cellars in the area. The Dornier family bought the first farm in 1995, planted most of the vineyards and opened a new cellar in 2003.

History

Dornier Wines is located on two estates, both with long traditions. The history of Keerweder goes back to 1694, when it was acquired by Jac van Dyk. The Homestead farm includes a historic Sir Herbert Baker homestead and one of the oldest wine cellars in the area. The Dornier family bought the first farm in 1995, planted most of the vineyards and opened a new cellar in 2003.

Philosophy

We are led by the principles of tradition and inspired by perfection; yet realise the power of innovation. Everything that Dornier stands for and embodies – be it the place or the wines – creatively fuse the opposites of change and stasis, seriousness and pleasure, complexity and simplicity. We embrace difference where it leads to improvement, and still recognise the value of what has come before.

Vineyards

Unique soils
Dornier is situated on ancient deep, decomposed red and yellow granite, Tukulu (yellow) and Oakleaf (red) soils. While varying in clay content, they all have good moisture retention and keep the vine roots cool. These complex soils are vital in giving our wines their unique character, as is the range in altitude of the vineyards – from 100 and 200 metres above sea level. A multitude of aspects add to vineyard diversity and the high mountain peaks trap the cool Atlantic breezes to slow the ripening and create intense flavour compounds.

Latest viticultural practices
There is a strong focus on viticultural practices to achieve the full potentional of our soils. Methods such as NDVI photography and pressure bombs help us to get the best possible results.
