Saronsberg’s winemaking officially began on 25 January 2004 with the pressing of our first Sauvignon Blanc grapes. Saronsberg originally formed part of the iconic and historical Twee Jonge Gezellen and consists of two parts formerly known as Waveren and Welgegund (also referred to by locals as ‘Die Erf’), the latter lying on the western slope of Saronsberg, the mountain after which the farm was named, and which spectacularly dominates the view from the cellar.
In the design of Saronsberg’s cellar we considered a variety of effective production facilities and available techniques. Our aim was not only to selectively combine these, but also to utilise existing technology. Hence we incorporated the force-cooling of grapes, intensive hand sorting of all our grapes, and the use of “gravity” in the fermentation process.
