Allesverloren Wine Estate @ Riebeek West
Location: Riebeek West
The Allesverloren vineyards creep up the imposing Kasteelberg in the scenic Riebeek Valley of the Swartland. Our vineyards range from 170m - 350m above sea level and benefit from a variance in rainfall of 200mm.
Cold and wet winters are followed by warm, dry summers where grapes ripen easily with high concentrations of sugar. The prevailing westerly winds, cool summer afternoons and the shadows of the mountain refresh the vines by late afternoon. These various meso-climates provide the ideal conditions for creating big, robust red wines.
The soils on this Swartland farm are a mixture of shale and weathered sandstone - a stony structure which is crucial to the particular character of Allesverloren wines. It accounts for the extraordinary depth which vine roots reach here, thus sustaining strong, healthy vines and resulting in deeply coloured, powerful wines with an excellent concentration of fruit.
In 1956, Daniël Francois Malan, grandfather to current winemaker, Danie Malan was the first of the Malan generations to initiate the esteemed Allesverloren trophy haul. He did this by winning the General Smuts Trophy in the SA Championship Young Wine Show for Allesverloren Port for two consecutive years (1956 and 1957). Our wines continue to win international acclaim, but at Allesverloren, we do what we do for the love of wine, not the accolades
Our Winemaker: Danie Malan
After graduating from Elsenburg Institute for Agricultural Training in 1987, fifth-generation Malan winemaker Danie joined Allesverloren to hone his skills under the watchful eye of his father Fanie. In 1990 Danie, went on to become the winemaker, and took the reins of owner from his father in 2003.
