Nederburg has a long wine-making history stretching back over 200 years to 1791 when Phillipus Bernadus Wolvaart was granted ownership of 49 hectares of land, in what is now Paarl, by the Dutch East India Company. He called his new property Nederburgh and immediately set about clearing land and planting vines. By 1808 he has planted over 63,000 vines laying the foundations for what was to become the wine company we know today.

Smooth, suave and self-assured, Baronne is one of South Africa’s most iconic, long- standing and top-selling red blends. The brainchild of legendary Nederburg cellar- master Günter Brözel, this classic wine was launched in 1973. So popular and ubiquitous is Baronne, that for some the name has come to signify red wine itself. After more than 50 years, this noble blend has never changed.

The grapes for this wine were sourced from top-performing vineyards situated across the wine-growing areas of the Western Cape. The viticulturist works hand-in-hand with the grape growers in managing each vineyard block to ensure the best quality fruit for this wine. The different microclimates and soil types associated with each vineyard add to the complexity of the wine. Balling during February and March. The fruit was crushed and fermented on the skins, with selected yeast strains, in temperature- controlled stainless-steel tanks at 25C to 28C. Upon extraction of desired colour and tannins, the wine was drained from the skins, and racked from the lees onto a selection of oak where the wine matured for approximately six months before blending.
