Warwick Wine Estate
When people talk about the ‘history’ of a place, they think of the people who lived there, and the personalities who built it. For Warwick Estate, ‘history’ began when the first title deed was issued for the land in 1771. For almost two hundred years, it was a hugely productive fruit farm that served the Cape’s growing pioneer population.
It was only in 1964 that the Ratcliffe Family arrived on the scene, and it took Canadian winemaker Norma Ratcliffe, alongside her husband Stan, twenty years before they released their first wine.
