The Rivergold farm is situated in Bonnievale, Robertson Valley, home to some of the best wines in South Africa. All Rivergold wines are handcrafted with minimal intervention production methods used.

Site specific, single vineyard wines

The source of our water originates from the Du Toits Kloof and Ceres mountain ranges and flows into the Brandvlei Dam that is then channelled down to our valley. We use this fresh water for our micro irrigation system.
