Maastricht Wines is my 145th winery visit in South Africa. They have recently renovated and opened their new tasting room and so are causing quite a stir in the Durbanville Wine Valley.
I arrived at 11am and was able to get one of the last tables available – it was quite full!
This winery was established in 1702 and recently purchased by the Louw family in 1982. Grape varietals such as Sauvignon Blanc, Pinotage, Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Pinot Noir were planted over 100 hectares of land.
An interesting fact is that it was discovered that, in a document from the early 19th century, Maastricht was one of the first nine farms to be registered as wine producers. A minimum of 10 000 vines was required in order to be classified as a wine estate.
Wine tasting is R70 for five wines including a glass of Cap Classique or R50 for 5 wines.
