While Haute Cabrière was established by Achim von Arnim and his wife, Hildegard, only some 33 years ago, its imprint on the country’s winemaking identity has been indelible. In this relatively short passage of time the brand, characterised by its iconic Haute Cabrière Chardonnay Pinot Noir, its fine Pinot Noirs, its celebrated Pierre Jourdan MCCs, and the lively Tranquille blend, has become firmly entrenched in the hearts and homes of wine lovers in this country and beyond.
Achim has worked with his eldest son, Takuan, at his side to grow Haute Cabrière’s distinctive portfolio of wines. Takuan took the reins as cellar master in 2015, continuing the French tradition of père et fils, yet Achim’s founding philosophy of Sun, Soil, Vine, Man continues to shine through in the wines of Haute Cabrière.
With no pre-booking required, Haute Cabrière is one of the few wineries in the Cape where tourists and wine-loving locals can simply wander in to the tasting room and discover estate wines in the company of the family that both own and manage the cellar. Private cellar tours – available in English, German and French – are available by appointment, and the cellar is open throughout the week for guests to discover the remarkable wines of Haute Cabrière at their leisure.
