The wine was named "Ayama", a Xhosa word meaning "someone to lean" means. The adventure of Ayama based on friendship and love. The Cape winelands are some of the most breathtakingly beautiful in the world. About 50 km from Cape Town, Paarl is situated beneath a large granite outcrop formed by three rounded domes, the prominent one named Paarl (which means pearl) rock. The summers are long and warm, and rainfall rare. A large variety of grapes are grown in Paarl, of which Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinotage, Shiraz, Chardonnay and Chenin Blanc have the best potential.

Named after the majestic views of the Simonsberg Mountain, Simonsig Estate is situated in the famous Stellenbosch Winelands just 45 km east of Cape Town. Since French Huguenot Jacques Malan first set foot in the Cape in 1688, the Malan family’s wine knowledge accumulated over many generations, has equipped them to excel as one of the leading private producers of estate wines in South Africa. The late Frans Malan, beloved patriarch of the Malan Family and one of the pioneers of the South African wine industry, was not only a craftsman of superior wines, but also introduced numerous Simonsig ‘firsts’, cementing the estate’s stately legacy in the Cape Winelands.

Meinert Vineyards

Wine is my means of expression, not just of myself but also such tangible aspects as our sites. As a young man I worked by chance for a few years as a journalist. I think I was searching for an artistic outlet and fortunately found it in winemaking, which began as a fascination with the product. Though I still dream of exploring other artistic endeavours I remain excited by the challenge of trying to make great wines. The quest is a very personal one to share distinctive wines and their stories with our friends and customers. – Martin Meinert

Breedekloof is one of the youngest wine regions in South Africa and was best known for its bulk wines. However, in collaboration with the Slanghoek Winery, Zonneweelde wants to offer a range of wines that can compete with the better wines of appellations such as Stellenbosch, Paarl, Darlington and other more famous regions. Currently, the Breedekloof wine region consists of only 22 producers. Together they want to significantly increase the quality of their valley. Zonneweelde and Slanghoek are among these pioneers. The top wines of Zonneweelde Vineyards are made on a limited basis and come from the best lots in the vineyard. The grapes are picked by hand, selected and made and raised as befits the better class wine. For cellar master Pieter Carstens and his team Zonneweelde is a major challenge and the pride of the Breedekloof valley.

Meerendal Wine Estate

The rich history of Meerendal Wine Estate began in 1702 when Governer Willem Adriaan van der Stel, son of the Constantia founder Simon van der Stel, granted the fertile land, located only 30km north-east of Cape Town, to Jan Meerland. Meerland passed away at sea on route to Europe in 1714. His wife, Christina Stans took charge of the wine estate and ten years later had already cultivated over 60'000 vines. Traditional cultivation methods such as bush vines are still found at Meerendal to this day. Meerendal was one the first wine estates to cultivate Pinotage, the new South African grape, developed in 1925 by Professor Abraham Perold at the University of Stellenbosch. The unique location and soil quality at Meerendal is ideal to cultivate this noble grape variety. Carefully selected grapes, combined with traditional and modern cellar technology, forms the basis of the excellent quality of Meerendal wines. Virtually at sea level, the hills of Meerendal rise above the flat surrounding landscape and are often surrounded by mist. Together these hills and valleys provide an almost endless variety of slopes, soil types and micro climates that make it possible to grow a range of classic cultivars with equal success. The Durbanville region is amongst the coolest wine-growing areas in the Cape Winelands and benefits from very little rain during the summer. The cool character is mainly caused by the southeast wind which blows over the vineyard on late afternoons during the summer months. The cool moist air slows the ripening of the fruit and concentrates flavour in the berries. "Our vision is to optimise what we are blessed with and continue to improve the quality of what we produce." - A message from Meerendal and its people
