The picturesque Robertson Valley is nestled in the shadow of the majestic Langeberg

mountains, close to the Breede (“Broad”) River. In addition to fine wine, the area is

recognized for roses and horse breeding. It was here that the De Wet family purchased a large tract of land in 1859, subsequently channeling the river and planting the region’s first vineyards. In 1870, the land was divided among the founder’s three sons, and the youngest named his portion “Excelsior.” Today the estate is owned by Freddie and Peter de Wet, the fourth and fifth generation of De Wets to farm the property
