Ashton Kelder was established on the 10th of May 1962 by a few eager producers. By the time the cellar was built the following year, there were 46 members who delivered a total of 2 130 tonnes of grapes. Today, more then fifty years later, we have a total of sixty shareholders who produce up to 24 000 tonnes of grapes annually.
We are ideally situated for commitment to quality as Ashton Kelder lies in the heart of the Robertson Wine Valley between the Breede River and the foothills of the Langeberg mountains. The unique climate, the variety of soils and scientific viticultural practices give the cellar the natural advantage to produce the best quality grapes and outstanding wines from this Valley of Wine and Roses.
When visiting be sure to play a game of chess on our giant chess board or book a tour of our 24 000 tonne capacity cellar. We have daily Free Wine Tastings for over 18’s and a jungle gym for the grape juice brigade.
