Ridgeback Wines is situated in Noord Agter Paarl surrounded by the rugged magnificence of the Paarl Mountains. The farm extends over an area of 65 hectares. Every effort has been made to retain the rich heritage of the countryside maintaining the Proteas and fynbos which flourish in the region.. The winery, overlooking a small dam, has an abundance of water fowl which blend into the countryside and creates a restful ambience.

Located in the tranquil gardens overlooking a dam populated with a range of exotic waterfowl, you will find the tasting room and restaurant called The Deck.  After a wine tasting one can enjoy a light meal from our small range of freshly made home-style cooking.  Children can buy a small pack of food to feed the birds and try to spot the very shy rabbits in the garden.

The setting is fantastic and soon lulls you into a relaxing and enjoyable frame of mind.

At Mellasat Vineyards we reckon we’re a bit different, which is why you’ll find a white Pinotage amongst our range of award winning wines. To make our wines more accessible we’ve established a tasting centre with stunning views of the Paarl valley and the craggy Klein Drakenstein mountains. And not content to leave it at that we’ve also created a Cemetery of Forgotten Wines in our underground cellar – an interesting and bizarre collection of museum wines that the consumer can interact with.
