Vilafonté is the coming together of great wine experience from California and South Africa. The vision that brought together the three founding Vilafonté partners, is the culmination of a life-long dream.  An uncompromising determination to produce wines which stand shoulder-to-shoulder with the great wines of the world. Nothing less.

Our enduring philosophy is of nurturing a culture of patience in the cellaring and enjoyment of our wines – an artistry to create wines of elegant complexity, structure and longevity.

Founded in 1997, the 42ha property with its unique vilafontes soils, served as the fuse to our vision.  Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Malbec confirmed its affinity to the ancient soils that has been dated as being somewhere between 750 000 and 1.5mil years old.  Planted at high density, these vines adhere to the exquisite struggle; encouraging smaller vines, lower yields and highly concentrated fruit.

Global Fine Wine Challenge Judges Commentary

Toni Paterson MW – Australia

“Ripe dark fruit. Plush. Cleansing on the close. Pure blue fruits. Lovely balance and freshness.”

Jane Skilton MW – New Zealand

“Opulent luxuriously fruited aroma. Dark chocolate and plum, very slight hint of raisins. Humungous opulent sweetly fruited palate. Lots of alcohol and tannin but seems in balance thanks to density of ripe fruit. Not for the faint hearted.”

Huon Hooke – Australia

“Chocolate, toffee caramel oak-infused. Lashings of gripping tannins. Massive wine.”

Anthony Mueller – America

“Mineral, dusty oaky with a firm mineral grip. The wine has layers and freshness, weight and complexity and ends with a spicy long finish. Plum skin and spiced cherry with an attractive fruit finish.”
