Du Toitskloof Wine Cellar was established by six wine farmers as a co-operative in 1962. Today it is a multi-million rand company, known as Du Toitskloof Wines, has 22 members, many of them second-generation descendants of the founding members. They all live in a close-knit community within a radius of 10 km from the cellar and all take a close interest in its activities.

In the early years, the industry was highly regulated; Du Toitskloof mainly produced wines in bulk for the country's wholesalers. Since the early 1990's, it has increasingly concentrated on the bottled wine market. It cultivated a reputation as a progressive winery from the onset, not only in the innovative winemaking disciplines introduced at the cellar, but also in guiding members in planting those great noble cultivars ideally suited to the area's temperate climate. This has since resulted in the brand being known countrywide for its excellent value-for-money wines.

Today it markets an extensive range of red and white table wines, in addition to fortified wines, through a sophisticated and talented network of distributors, marketers and salespeople. Du Toitskloof proudly hosts the largest Fairtrade empowerment project of its kind in South Africa and has grown in numerous foreign markets. The cellar constantly updates their offering: A reserve range was launched 5-years ago, with the new naturally sparkling Cape Beach Club and price-conscious Old Tunnel being new additions to the exemplary Du Toitskloof Wines’ range.
