Situated on the high slopes of Helshoogte Pass (“hell’s heights”), Bartinney overlooks the picturesque Banghoek Valley in Stellenbosch. The estate was established in 1920 by a retired director of Harrod’s, the famed London department store, who described it as “the most beautiful valley on Earth." Today, current proprietors Michael Jordaan and his wife, Rose, are passionate about crafting quality bottlings that are a true reflection of Bartinney’s extreme terroir. With the hands of seasoned winemaker Ronell Wiid, the estate's Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon are elegant, balanced, and an expression of the land they hail.
