Delheim Wine Estate

Delheim Wine Estate is a family owned estate, which has become a household name in South Africa.

It was originally home to a Dutch East India Company servant, whose job it was to fire a cannon from the peak directly above the property, appropriately named Kanonkop.

This cannon was the third in a relay from Cape Town, via Koeberg, signaling the arrival of any foreign vessels in Table Bay. The Free Burghers of the surrounding areas would then hurry to Cape Town and trade with the visitors or defend the town against attack.

Spatz Sperlin is the vintner and actively involved with the general management of the business.

After 60 years of hard work and dedication, Spatz has become synonymous with the name Delheim, he also has an unequalled reputation in the South African wine industry of today.

The family is very involved in all aspects of the farm.
Vera, his wife, is involved with activities such as decor and layouts.
Both children
Nora is involved with the marketing, sales and exports. Victor is the viticulturist, and also involved with the general management of the farm.

Tastings are done at the well-known "Downstairs" cellar.

For those who like their wines aged, they have the "Collectors Corner" where you can browse at your own leisure, or admire the spider web covered windows which has become a legend of its own.
