The name reflects movement, grace, simplicity - and joy. It started one day as a final year viticulture student when Carla and her classmates had to disgorge their very own MCC bottles: "I was captivated! When I had the opportunity to make my first batch of MCC several years later the magic repeated itself when my friends helped to pick the grapes by hand. Afterwards in the cellar we danced on the grapes to squeeze out the juice" ...
and Saltare was born.
We carefully select our grapes from five different vineyards across the Western Cape and transport them to our cellar in Stellenbosch where winemaker Carla Pauw applies her art. Our vineyards each tell a story about the hands that tend a keep them - read about some of the remarkable people behind the grapes under Vineyards.
The cellar is located along the banks of the Eerste River close to the centre of town. Please contact us for appointments, or enjoy a taste of Saltare Wines and our Extra Virgin Olive Oil on our website and in our online shop.
