On the Northern slopes of Paarl Mountain you will find Pearl Mountain, a fifth generation, family owned farm dating back to the 18th Century. The farm is steeped in history and is home to Pearl Mountain Wines and Blacksmith’s Kitchen. Pearl Mountain was originally established in 1747 as a blacksmith’s home and forge, along the wagon trail which linked Cape Town with the hinterland.
Pearl Mountain wines are inspired by the dedication of 5 generations of Retiefs to this unique tract of terrior. The farm produces two ranges, Retief and Stubborn Man, under the Pearl Mountain label. All the grapes are grown on the farm and are sourced from single block vineyards on the cool, east-facing slopes of the Paarl Mountain.
Since 1873 the Retief family have been living up to their name by battling the elements, great granite boulders, grey-suited bank managers, and of course, each other. Stubborn Man contains the fruits of that stubbornness: a particularly agreeable wine especially crafted to give life a little more flavour, just like all those stubborn people in your family and ours.
