Established in 1916, Backsberg produces great value, high quality wines produced with much consideration and respect for the environment. The philosophy they live by has always focused on providing pleasure and enjoyment to a broad range of wine lovers by producing wines that are elegant and approachable.
Backsberg's vineyards are situated on the slopes of Simonsberg mountains between Paarl and Stellenbosch, enjoying full sunny days in the summer and cold wet days in the winter – a great location to ‘grow’ wine. They apply meticulous attention to canopy management, irrigation and trellis systems to ensure balance and the production of high quality fruit. Their delicious wines are a product of the detailed attention in the vineyard and the skill of Resident Winemaker, Alicia Rechner.
