More about us
Synonymous with Ladismith is Towerkop (“Magic Mountain”), that shelters the town – the logical choice for the cellar’s flagship label. It also speaks of our deep rootedness in Ladismith and Klein Karoo winemaking since the cellar began operating independently in 1939.
At the beginning of 2005, the cellar joined forces with the neighbouring Barrydale Cellar and formed Southern Cape Vineyards, an umbrella company, to share and exchange technology and capacity to make the most – and the best – of the resources available to them.
