brunia wines family

After scouring the Cape Winelands in excess of two years and almost at the point of re-committing to the humdrum of city life, Brett and Wade launched a last-ditch effort to transform the dream into reality.

After an emotional rollercoaster of six months of intensive negotiations, Cold Mountain Vineyards was finally acquired by the Sander Family in September 2016.

The farm is located 17 km east of Stanford in a valley known as Sondagskloof, which drains westward into the Uilenkraal River. The surrounding topography rises to an altitude of 845 m whilst the highest point on the farm is 290 m.

With the exception of a sandstone hill, most of the farm is characterised by moderate slopes. The farm is bounded by the heights of the Koueberg Mountain range in the south and has the imposing Tafelberg on its northern boundary.

The farm stretches over 417Ha with 17 Ha of vineyards, 6 Ha under figs and 5 Ha of seasonal vegetables. The farm, as much of the Cape South Coast, is blessed with vast tracts of pristine fynbos which is home to a diversity of plant and animal species, including the rare Brunia Laevis, more commonly known as Silver Brunia which lends its name to our range of boutique wines.

Under the direction of Brett and Wade Sander, the family has transformed the farm into a mixed farming organic and biodynamic operation.
The process of conversion has come at significant cost, both in terms of reduced yields and expense, all in pursuit of developing and sustaining healthy living soils and the cultivation of fruit imbued with exceptional quality. Our mantra is outstanding wines require exceptional grapes.
