Alto Winery

alto

The Latin name for Alto is a reference to the altitudes ofour vineyards and the estate’s own aspirations of excellence. Since 1920, only five winemakers have crafted our portfolio of internationally acclaimed red wines. Alto is situated high on the slopes of the imposing Helderberg Mountain in the Stellenbosch Winelands. The trellised vineyards cling to the high granite slopes that rise from 100 to 500 metres above sea level, which are ideal for the cultivation of red grape varietals.

Today, Alto Wine Estate sports 93 hectares of land under vines and has earned more than 70 gold medals in local and international wine competitions.

Our estate’s sound reputation for producing world-class red wines can be ascribed, in part, to its excellent terroir. Located in the Stellenbosch Winelands, it is no coincidence that the area is known, locally, as the Golden Triangle. In summer, when the vines are drenched in sunshine, the late-afternoon sea breezes cool the grapes, lengthening the ripening period and preserving the complex flavours of our noble varietals.

Visit the estate, enjoy the view and indulge your senses with the delightful experiences Alto has to offer. This includes a platter for two, Fine Old Vintage and Truffle pairing as well as the popular Pâté & Wine Pairing and our Steak & Shiraz Events on selected Saturdays during the summer months.

Such a small, but lovely tasting room. Almost feels like you live there and you are having a glass of wine on your '' stoep''.
