Established in 1698, Altydgedacht Estate is one of the oldest wine farms in South Africa. The farm boasts an unbroken wine making tradition exceeding two centuries and six generations of Parkers as custodians of the fine Durbanville terroir. From the white washed walls to the three hundred year old cellar, the farm has managed to maintain its original charm and character.
Altydgedacht is one of the historic farms established on the fertile slopes of the Tygerberg and has been in the Parker family since 1852. Brothers John and Oliver use the varied soils, slopes and microclimates to grow high quality grapes from suitable noble varieties. Winemaker Oliver produces wines of distinctive character and strong varietal flavour, typical of the renowned Durbanville area.
