Our Story

CAPE WINE COMPANY THRIVES ON BEING INNOVATIVE AND PUSHING THE LIMITS

Specialising in Product Development and Project Management within the South African wine industry, Cape Wine Company is a purveyor of wines to wine lovers across the world. With a resident winemaker on our side, we ensure only the best quality wines for all our clients and brands.

Our Story

Cape Wine Company was founded in 2010 when Erlank Erasmus decided to take his craft as winemaker and create a space from which he could share the produce with wine lovers across the world. With full confidence in the quality of wine produced in the Cape Winelands of South Africa,

Cape Wine Company likes to get creative and develop new product ranges throughout the year.

We also provide project management services assisting brands in getting their wine from the vine to the bottle to shelves the world over.

Social Responsibility

Given the rich history of our country, Cape Wine Company is proud to give back to the communities that assist in producing our wines, from vine to bottle, through participating in the Fairtrade initiative. This initiative ensures that farming communities in the South African wine industry benefit through sustainability and equality.

Similarly, through participating in the Wine and Agricultural Ethical Trade Association (WIETA), Cape Wine Company supports ethical trade within the local wine industry. We are also a BEE Level 7 contributor.

Erasmus Family

Erasmus Family

In 1693, Pieter “Den Deen” Erasmus took a brave journey from the Netherlands to settle in the Cape. On 28 February 1699, Governer Willem Adriaan van der Stel would grant Erasmus the farm De Groenenbergh in Wagenmakersvallei. He married Maria Elizabeth Joosten who then joined him and subsequently gave birth to their son, Rasmus – the first of nine children.

Until his death in 1731, Erasmus paved the way for what today thrives as green-stretching vineyards. As the progenitor of the Erasmus family of South Africa, his legacy continues to thrive in his descendants who are still crafting wine in this region to this very day.

Home of Erasmus

Home of Erasmus

Declared a National Monument, this House with its towering, pediment gable was originally the homestead of the Farm De Kleine Konstantie, part of the original land owned by Hermanus Bosman since 1717. When Willem A. Bosman acquired De Kleine Konstantie in 1830, he set out to build a house for his family and had the Cape Dutch House erected in 1841, soon turning it into a beautiful home together with his wife, Andriena D. Mellet.

In 1972, the Farmland was subdivided in terms of a Village plan and the house today forms part of an extended neighbourhood. It is currently in proud ownership of the Erasmus Family.

Nieuwe Haarlem

Nieuwe Haarlem

 

De Nieuwe Haarlem, carries a legend filled with bravery, adventure and perseverance. As one of the VOC’s (Vereenigde Oost-Indische Compagnie) fleet it ploughed the oceans between continents at a time when the VOC was the world’s first and mightiest multi-national corporation. From the VOC’s headquarters in Amsterdam it transported high company officials to far-away colonies.

When it floundered in bad weather and ran aground near Table Bay in 1647 the heroic crew’s survival and exploration of the vicinity led to the establishment of a halfway station by Jan van Riebeeck on April 6, 1652, that ultimately led to the founding of South Africa and the first vines being planted in the Cape.
This wine is made from 40 year old Cinsault bush vines, of which only ten barrels have been produced.

JUNO

JUNO

Juno. Roman queen of the gods, divine protectress and symbol of eternal youth. She is one part fierce, one part compassion. She wears a goat’s skin to symbolise her combatant force, while her chariot is drawn by peacocks who safeguard her. A salute to the italian influence on South African food, wine and lifestyle, Juno is reminiscent of the vino of Italia: absolutely ‘magnifico’!

McGarry's

McGarry's

In 1921, a young bartender at The Buck’s Club, named Malachy McGarry, noticed that all his “regulars” treated their precious social time at the bar as a big night out, with many heavy drinks.

Wanting them to enjoy themselves for longer, he invented a new drink, “Buck’s Fizz,” a combination of sparkling wine and orange juice. A drink filled with pleasure, but far lighter and crisper for his patrons. He was known as a legend at The Buck’s Club for the next fourty years that he worked there, and the drink remains world famous today.
