Located on the verdant Northern slopes of Paarl Mountain in the heart of the Paarl Winelands, Windmeul Kelder was first established in 1944.

Originally the brainchild of a group of export grape farmers who sought to vinify a portion of their crop that was not suitable for table use, the co-operative cellar was a joint venture between these growers and several wine farmers from the Paarl region. While the cellar initially mainly produced distilling and rebate wines, the impeccable quality of the regional terroir lead to experimentation with vineyard practices and cultivars. Today the cellar draws from a host of well-tended vineyards, enabling the winemaking team to produce a range of exceptional wines that are enjoyed both locally and abroad.
