Swartland Winery Founders Sauvignon Blanc

Swartland Winery is situated north of Cape Town, near the town of Malmesbury in the Swartland, a popular wine destination.
The vineyards benefit from the constant cool breezes that blow off the Atlantic Ocean, effectively sustaining the many microclimates, while the proximity to mountain ranges adds it own dimension to the physical character of the fruit. Over the past 70 years this well known winery has changed from a cooperative cellar into a wine company with three business units that offer our clients an all-in-one wine experience.

The Founders range is a tribute to South Africa’s wine roots, and features varieties proven over time and experience to excel in their undulating dry‐land region.
