The Spirit of the Cape
Wilderer is South Africa’s first and most awarded Craft Distillery and host to two authentic German – Italian restaurants. Wilderer was established by master distiller Helmut Wilderer in Stellenbosch in January 1995. Today, Wilderer produces award winning Gin, Grappa and Eaux de Vie, from two premises in the vicinity in Paarl: one in Simondium and another on the celebrated Spice Route destination farm in Suider Paarl, each with its own restaurant. Join us at Pappa Grappa (Simondiun) or La Grapperia (Spice Route) to enjoy a delicious meal alongside a tasting of our innovative spirits.
Having accrued over 100 international awards, including many gold and double gold medals, Wilderer Distillery has become synonymous with quality, artistry and integrity. Isn’t it about time you’ve samples the brand of choice for connoisseurs around the world?
“GUT DING BRAUCHT WEILE” Good things take time, was one of Helmut Wilderer’s favourite mantras.
At Wilderer Distillery, we pride ourselves in our everlasting pursuit of producing the best possible quality. We work closely with the farmers throughout the year in order to receive the ideal raw materials. Fresh, ripe, healthy and full of aroma, are some of the characteristics of our selected fruit and botanicals. We carefully process, ferment and distil using German equipment of the highest technological standard. Under the keen eye and nose of the Distiller, we select only a few litres, after a long production day, to be branded “Wilderer”. Always in Helmut Wilderer’s true spirit, we craft the true Spirit of the Cape.
The Wilderer team refuses to compromise when it comes to the integrity of the product. This is why every step, in the process of creating their award-winning products, is carefully monitored and completed with meticulous attention to detail. Wilderer produces some of the finest Grappa from the best available Muscat, Pinotage and Shiraz grapes.
Produced in harmony with nature. The purest wine spirit, water from the Franschhoek mountains and unique Fynbos botanicals, make this Cape Gin a true South African speciality. Wilderer Fynbos Gin boasts a very well balanced assortment of herbs, spices and zest on the nose. On the palate, it reveals juniper berries and typical Cape Fynbos in stunning depth and complexity. To be sipped neat, mixed with quality soda or tonic water.
Join us at either of our two locations and witness our distilling team performing their craft. Learn more about the production process or simply indulge in the tasting of our award-winning range of fine spirits.
