Dwarsrivier Valley Tourism

Bartinney Private Cellar (Pty) Ltd.


Bartinney is situated on the hellish high slopes of Helshoogte Pass and overlooks the picturesque Banhoek Valley in Stellenbosch. Passionately involved husband and wife team, Michael and Rose Jordaan, repurchased the 40 ha family farm in 2006 with a vision to create excellent wines and reawaken the charm of the beautiful property. The newly renovated boutique cellar now produces Sauvignon blanc and Chardonnay from low yielding vineyards positioned on cooler elevated slopes. Cabernet Sauvignon is planted in deep red soils on the slightly lower foothills and the 2009 vintage is up for release early 2011.

Bartinney is situated on a mountain overlooking the beautiful Banghoek Valley in Stellenbosch. The 3 main cultivars planted here are Sauvignon blanc (3.23ha ), Chardonnay (2.96ha) and Cabernet Sauvignon (12.5ha). The white cultivars are planted on the higher north and north east facing slopes while the red grows on the slightly lower foothills on a variety of aspects. High altitude viticulture with elevations up to 550m above sea level combined with extreme slopes (up to 45%) requires us to tend to our vines by hand. Soils consist mostly of high potential deep red, well drained soils on the mid slopes. Red, stony soils are found on the higher slopes.
