In Their Words
Arra Vineyards History & Location
Situated in the heart of South Africa’s Cape Winelands north of Stellenbosch, Arra Vineyards enjoys an ideal location where we grow, produce and bottle all our wines. The Klapmuts Mountain provides us with an abundance of water and shelters us from the Cape’s south-easterly winds, while providing our vines with ideal soils and north facing slopes for ample sunshine.
The 74 hectare farm is under 30 hectares of vines, comprising of Cabernet Sauvignon, Viognier, Ruby Cabernet, Merlot, Shiraz and Pinotage. Using only the finest French oak barrels, our wines are matured for up to 24 months, while being constantly monitored to maintain their deep, fruity flavours and creamy textures.
At Arra Vineyards we are dedicated to ensure that our wines reach maturity in the bottle before we release them for sale.
