Inspired by the historic fishing
village of Arniston, the Arniston Bay wine range was established in 1996.
Harnessing the coastal vineyards, our winemaker Abraham De Villiers produces wines that benefit from the cooling effect of the Atlantic Ocean and reflect the charm of Arniston.
The small fishing village of Arniston is situated at the most southerly point of the African continent.
It is best known for its 200 year-old fisherman’s village, Kassiesbaai. The village is a national monument and its whitewashed, thatched cottages have stolen the hearts of many.
The range of Arniston Bay wines aim to capture the essence of Arniston’s charm and character. As a global brand, Arniston Bay reached a peak of 12 million bottles.
Sauvignon Blanc - Semillion
Crisp, refreshing and brimming with bright aromas of passion fruit, white peach and lime, the expressive Arniston Bay Sauvignon Blanc – Semillon is vibrant and ideal to enjoy with fresh seafood.
Like the pale pink haze that casts over Arniston Bay to mark the end of a summer’s day, the Arniston Bay Rosé is elegant and striking, with alluring notes of pomegranate, grapefruit and lemon blossoms.
An enchanting, smooth and juicy Merlot, with lashings of ripe cherries and plush plums. This is a wine for every season. Medium-bodied and perfumed, with a vibrant youthfulness.
The father and son duo of Francois and Abraham de Villiers have crafted the Arniston Bay wines for more than two decades. With intimate knowledge of South Africa’s coastal vineyards, they control the winemaking process from the vineyard to the bottle.
