Franschhoek Wine Valley

Old Road Wine Co.

There is something about an old vine. Something mysterious, intangible but unmistakably distinctive. Its history interwoven with the soil in which it is rooted, branching out to the farm, the town, and the surrounding wine region. In the Franschhoek Valley, these magnificent old vines have helped to forge a reputation for quality and excellence that spans generations.

As vintners of Franschhoek and keepers of this legacy, we pay tribute to these special vines through the Old Road Wine Co. and its wines. Made in a cellar standing proudly in the town’s old main road, they tell the stories that have shaped our history, of pockets of earth that have yielded the fruit around which an illustrious industry was founded. Of vines revered like a tree of life that gives sustenance to its environment, enduring through time and the harshest elements.

The stories of these unique vines and their rich heritage still resonate in the wines they produce today. Wines with character and staying power. Old Road wines speak not only to the senses but also to something in the soul.
