Anderson Wines

Andersons Andersons

Proudly… Origin of Plettenberg Bay

Overlooking Keurboomstrand and Robberg Peninsula, the Anderson vineyard is delicately layered with a gradual flow between fynbos and indigenous forest and enjoys a mild cool breeze from the Indian Ocean. Located in the area ‘Keurbooms Heights’ east of Plett, the farm is blessed withastoundingocean and mountain views. The farm is home to local wildlife including caracal, bush pig and bush buck. From the call of the African Fish Eagle in the valley to the famous Knysna Turaco, this is a natural haven. The Anderson trademark, the Letovenus moth - commonly known as the Silver-spotted ghost moth or Keurboommoth, is found in the bark of the plentifulKeurboom trees found on this beautiful farm...so the name came to be.

It was a great passion for wine and viticulture that started the vineyards in 2007. The project was started by Bruce Anderson, a family friend not related to Ian Anderson, and owner of the farm, Pine Haven. The farm of 109 hectares was bought by Ian and his father in 1972. An area of three hectares on the western side of the farm was transformed to vineyards, just below a picturesque dam. Bruce and Ian worked together as partners until 2012, when Bruce decided to withdraw from the project. Ian continues to look after and run the business.
The first bottling was in 2011, and most recently the 2013 wine was bottled at the end of July. This flavoursome Sauvignon Blanc has nuances of grapefruit and lime fruit with tones of green melon and passion fruit on the nose. The wine is processed and bottled at Bramon Cellar by local wine maker Anton Smal. Wine tasting and sales by appointment only.
