The High Road:
For those whose sense of taste favours the elegance and complexity of classic Bordeaux-style reds, The High Road is the perfect destination. Established in 2003 as a boutique négociant producer, The High Road has cultivated a considerable reputation amongst Bordeaux aficionados.

The brand has been built on four unwavering pillars of distinction: exclusive sourcing of quality grapes perfected by the Stellenbosch Terroir, a single-minded focus on Bordeaux Varietals, an insistence on using a considered selection of fine French Oak barrels, and our proprietary High Road Practices.

Guided by our consultant winemakers for the past 15 vintages, we have succeeded in producing exceptional vintage-specific wines with the elegance, intrinsic depth and distinction of a classic Bordeaux red at their core. The epitome of Bordeaux, yet expressing a sense of place that is uniquely Stellenbosch.
