Holden Manz is a South African winery situated on a 22 hectare farm next to the Franschhoek River 300 meters above sea level in the famous Cape Valley wine region. With three different soil types and a marked seasonal climate, the estate’s vineyards are perfectly suited to produce ultra-premium wines made for the discerning wine connoisseur.
As an exclusive grower of red grapes, the Estate only cultivates its top 16 hectares under vineyards, notably Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Syrah and Merlot.
With average production sitting at 100 tonnes of manually harvested, high quality grapes, an intimate approach with emphasis on ‘attention to detail’ is maintained throughout. Around 130,000 bottles are produced per year of which 60% are exported.
The wine is produced by world-renowned winemaker, Thierry Haberer, whose family has been producing wine for three generation. His wines have won both local and international awards, including at the USA Sommeliers Choice Awards and the Chenin Blanc Natinal Young Wine Award.
The winery is also environmentally friendly with its recent addition of 65 kW of solar panels which has significantly reduced its energy consumption – a big step in its ongoing commitment to sustainable production practises.
