Perfect for holiday entertaining, these thoroughbred wines have a longstanding track record for quality & value.
Excelsior Wine Estate has consistently received “Best Buy” accolades and praise from press. As Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate recently noted, the estate “represents another of those South African instances where one wonders how the wines can possibly be well-made, distinctively- packaged, exported to the States, and still sell for a mere ten dollars.”
In addition to producing a series of delicious and approachable value wines, Excelsior has a long history of horse breeding. In the days before the advent of the automobile, the farm was known as a source of the finest hackney carriage horses. The De Wets eventually turned from hackneys to championship thoroughbred racehorses, and Excelsior quickly established a reputation as one of South Africa’s most distinguished stud farms. The estate’s horse breeding tradition is reflected in the equine theme on the Excelsior labels.
