Alvi’s Drift wines are produced at Alvi’s Drift Private Cellar in the pristine Breede River Valley in the Western Cape of South Africa. The cellar and farm are owned and operated by the 2nd and 3rd generations of the van der Merwe family.
Alvi’s Drift Private Cellar takes its name from the low water bridge crossing the Breede River on the family farm which is know as Alfalfa. Alfalfa is a 7,000ha property owned by the van der Merwe family with 410 ha dedicated to 19 grape varieties. Chenin Blanc and Pinotage are specialties.
Built by Albertus Viljoen (Alvi) van der Merwe (the 1st) in 1928 to allow access to the family property, the drift became known locally as Alvi’s Drift. The property includes a game reserve with eland, springbok, ostriches and gemsbok among others.
I purchased a bottle of your Chardonnay-Viognier last Sunday from Food Lover's Market and was pleasantly surprised. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed this wine!!
Ons het onlangs Alvi's Drift ontdek, my nuutste gunsteling is Chardonnay - Viognier. Dankie
I bought some of your wine at the George Cheese and Wine festival earlier this year and have thoroughly enjoyed it.
The best ever!!!!!!!
I recently discovered your Viognier and absolutely love it. Thank you for such an amazing wine!
Hi, I love Sauvignon Blanc. Your 2015 Gold Award is the best I have ever tasted
I don't think I can drink any other wine but the wine you guys make. I got introduced to your white wine last year December at Lupa in Westville, Durban and I have never looked back. I just want to say thanks a million for driving me and my friends crazy.
This is the most amazing Viognier ever. Absolutely balance and wonderful with Cheese and all my favourite foods.
Pinotage is just the best by far!
Your wines is the best. Pinotage is perfect.
Finest Pinotage I have tasted
If you plan to visit us, and we appreciate those of you who make the journey, we would like to inform you of our tasting facilities to avoid confusion or disappointment. We are off the beaten tourist track and consequently don’t have a full time staffed tasting room.
However, we do have a nice tasting venue and you will be welcomed with open arms when you arrive. Our only request is that you ring and make an appointment 48 hours in advance. This is to ensure that we have people available to make your visit a memorable one.
Please also note that due to local government systems being what they are, we have not been given permission to erect signs at this point in time.
Directions are available on the website here. We will look forward to your visit.
