The Cape of Good Hope range was developed in recognition of the Cape’s vinous heritage, which stretches back more than 350 years, and is made from grapes of vineyards that are older than 35 years. The project was initiated in 2007, with the objective to encourage wine grape farmers to keep their older vineyards.
