We make good wine

Inspired by the legendary Rhodesian Ridgeback, known for its bravery in the African bushveld, our wines embody the same resilience and character. From the meticulously cared-for vineyards secured on high trellises to the serene winery overlooking a small dam, Ridgeback Wines is a celebration of nature's beauty and the artistry of winemaking.

The heart of Paarl

Ridgeback Wines is situated in the northern part of the picturesque town of Paarl in the Western Cape, on the northern slopes of the magnificent Paarl mountain. The farm extends over an area of 65 hectares. Retaining the rich heritage of the countryside’s proteas and fynbos, which flourish in the region, is a priority that we are deeply and continuously committed to. Our vineyards are amongst the finest in the Cape, and our winery, which overlooks a small dam, is home to an abundance of Koi fish which add to the beauty and peaceful ambience of this tranquil environment.

A total of 35 hectares are currently under vine with the potential to increase the capacity further. In order to enable our Winemaker to produce our exciting array of blends and single varietal wines, the farm has planted a wide variety of different cultivars.

We've always loved the wine from Ridgeback and especialy enjoy having a bottle of Mischief while looking at the swans, ducks and Koi fish who were so beautifully on display. We frequented the Restaurant over the last few years and visited again recently. We were so disappointed that ALL the swans and ducks have been removed and most of the Koi fish are also gone. It's lost it's main attraction now and I'm afraid we won't be back. The menu also seems to have been replaced with a very expensive new menu.

Great experience!The restaurant is beautifull situated- overlooking the pond with trees.The food was so good.We ordered the gourmet burger. It was huge, but the flavours complimented each other really well. The patty was thick and perfectly prepared. We also had the steak and kidney pie. It was lovely! Portions were generous and the dish was full of flavour! Lastly, the battered hake was also very nice. The lemon sauce compliments it very well.The wine was great value for money! Good wine, even better price.
