Hartswater Winery, Hartswater, Vaalharts Irrigation Scheme, Northern Cape.

Wine was first produced in 1977 when grapes were first produced in the region.† A variety cultivars were planted, such as chardonnay, colombar, chenin blanc, therona, fernao pires, chenel and emerald riesling, as well as red cultivars such as ruby cabernet and pinotage. Wines originating in Hartswater are marketed under the Hinterland trademark, which suits the region well. Cecil John Rhodes, whose roots lie deep in the Kimberley area and who identified Vaalharts as a suitable irrigation area used this term to describe the interior.† We offer a variety to suit all tastes, from dry to a natural, rather sweet wine as well as fortified wines.† Overvaal uncertified wines are available in boxes for buyers who buy in larger quantities. They vary from dry to semi-sweet.† The cellar is in Hartswater. Visitors are welcome to taste or buy. Larger groups are welcome but are requested to book in advance. Visiting hours are Monday to Fridays from 08h30 to 13h00 and 14h00 to 17h00, and on Saturdays by prior arrangement.
