Brand Story

The vineyards of Babylonstoren are nestled on the slopes of the Simonsberg Mountain, just north of Stellenbosch between Paarl & Franschhoek. The name dates back to a time when a large hill on the property became a routine meeting spot for the diverse local population. It became referred to as “The Tower of Babel” due to the converging of the many languages spoken in the area. The farm is owned by former magazine editor Karen Roos. The first vintage was in 2011. The cellar master is Charl Coetzee (formerly of Kaapzicht & Clos Malverne) & the winemaker is Klaas Stoffberg (formerly of Ernie Els Wines). The farm grows many varietals, including Chenin Blanc, Viognier, Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Merlot, & Petit Verdot. Chardonnay & Pinot Noir grow in the highest site.
