Vilafonté is the coming together of great wine experience from California and South Africa. An expression of pedigree. Vilafonté is the culmination of a dream. Our dream is to produce wines which stand shoulder-to-shoulder with the great wines of the world. Nothing less.
Vilafonté will only ever produce two wines. In the formative years, Winemaking Partner Zelma Long noticed that our vineyard was producing two distinctive styles. Both styles were of the highest quality, not one of them better than the other, but distinctive nonetheless. One portion of the vineyard produced a soft, rounded, fleshy and fruit driven style. The other side of our vineyard produced a bolder, more powerful and structured style. It was this realisation that lead to the emergence of Series M and Series C.
"Vilafonte is a passion. Vilafonte is all about an unwavering commitment to excellence - in everything we do." (Mike Ratcliffe, co-founder)
