South African wines so often tread the line between the old world and the new, between time-honed legacies and technological modernity, and for Zonnebloem’s range of award winning wines, this balance of classic and contemporary is ever present. Zonnebloem is a brand that stands for craftsmanship in all its forms. From the farms that produce our grapes who use the earth as their canvas to create the fruit which lends our wines their rich, distinctive character; to the winemakers who use the skills they have learned and developed over generations to produce the rich varietals and blends that make up the Zonnebloem stable – craft has been at the heart of our winemaking process since the 17th century. Zonnebloem invests in craftsmen and artisans to ensure that every bottle is presented, and enjoyed, in a way that speaks to the care that went into its creation.
