Diemersdal farm was established in 1698 and has been in the hands of the Louw family since 1885. The sixth generation to work here, Thys Louw is actively involved in the viticulture and winemaking. In all there are 340 hectares of land, 180 are under vine, whilst the remainder is grazing land. Six varieties are planted and whilst Sauvignon Blanc is something of a speciality, they also produce very elegant and concentrated Cabernets. The estate is not irrigated and benefits from cool mists that roll in each afternoon off the Atlantic, helping to slow ripening and produce wines of great aromatic finesse.
