Wine making & cellars


DGB Production is committed to being a responsible producer of wine and spirits at our three production sites in Franschhoek, Boschendal and Wellington, where our headquarters are situated.
The tank plant at Wellington handles the receival, blending and final preparation of bulk wines for white wine products and spirits production. It comprises of all modern, stainless steel tanks with a total capacity of 7,2 million litres.
The laboratory functions as a vital gear in the production machine. It is here that product quality checks are made at important stages of the winemaking process to ensure that only the best ends up in each bottle.
DGB's packaging facility with three bottling lines equipped for wine production, two lines for spirits bottling, and a sleeving line, offers us a full-service spectrum. A further work and five-station labelling line allow for specialised projects with small volumes.
Fine wine deserves fine storage, to make sure it is in the same pristine condition upon arrival on the retail shelf and consumer's glass as when it left the cellar.


South Africa has a rich and varied terrain and is famed for the ancient soils and diverse properties across our wine growing regions.

In 1973, the introduction of the Wine of Origin System saw the division of South Africa’s Winelands into demarcated regions, each divided into districts, then wards and finally, estates.

Our Viticulturist

DGB’s dedicated Viticulturist has extensive experience with the diverse vineyards  of the Cape Winelands. In our search for great grapes from wonderful growers, our Viticulturist is the critical link between these growers and winemakers in the Cellar.

To honour our philosophy of authentic expressions and minimal intervention, a stringent viticultural regime is followed to ensure exceptional quality fruit and healthy vineyards. Our Viticulturist is a great advocate of biological farming, taking the most natural course of action wherever and whenever possible.

Driven by passion and respect for the greater environment as well as the tremendous wealth of the Cape floral Kingdom, Our Viticulturist is an important leader of DGB’s sustainability and carbon offset projects ensuring the utmost integrity of nature in all our operations.


To know where you are going, you have to know and embrace your past. This life wisdom also rings true for wine.

Our premium wines are aged in a cooled vinoteque at optimal circumstances with the purpose of reaching each wine’s ideal maturation.


When wine meets wood, a magic unfolds that is as old as time, but has evolved into a fine art in the modern era. 

Ageing in oak barrels is an integral phase for the making of quality wines. For this reason this process is a focus point for DGB and receives consummate attention and resources.
