in the vineyard : The name and tradition of Bertrams dates back to the 1800s when Robert Fuller Bertram purchased the High Constantia Cellars. The Bertrams company continued to expand until the decision was made to relocate the winery to the Devon Valley in Stellenbosch in 1959. The estate extends over 220 hectares, most situated on gently rising slopes with a prevailing south-east wind that acts like a thermostat on both the vines and the valley. Because of the two soil types and excellent rainfall, the estate is able to plant Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinotage and Shiraz alongside the white cultivars.
