Welcome to Alvi’s Drift – Home of Award-Winning South African wines!
Since 1928 Alvi’s Drift has dared to pursue its true passion for exceptional quality South African wines that express the story of this unique, temperate wine farm nestled in the mountains.
It’s more than a promise.
Creating the best possible South African wine is a way of life.
We’re not here to break even. We’re here to break rules. To challenge expectations and inspire more honest, open and spontaneous connections, more often. Connecting people with the best possible South African wine and enriching their enjoyment of what really matters. Celebrating the occasions, the company and the moments that make living so rewarding.
Before our vineyards make grapes, our location makes ideal conditions.
Fertile, temperate, and nourished year-round by the breathtaking Breede River, our vineyards enjoy a special, slightly drier Mediterranean microclimate with the Atlantic Ocean cooling our night-time temperatures. Some refer to it as perfect.
We simply call it home.
Celebrating winemaking as a matter of choice, not chance.
The Alvi’s Drift cellar is where we experiment, innovate and dare to be true in living out our passion for winemaking. It’s one place you’ll rarely find us doing what’s expected. We’re too busy doing what we love.
