Clos Malverne, situated in the picturesque Devon Valley outside Stellenbosch, have established themselves as producers of finely crafted wines.
Seymour Pritchard bought the 10-hectare farm Malvern Heights in 1969 from Colonel JW Billingham, who had named the farm after the rolling hills around Malvern in his native England. When winemaking came into Seymour’s sights in the mid-1980’s France was still at the centre of the wine universe so he “Frenchised” the name to Clos Malverne.
Clos Malverne is now very much a family affair. Seymour Pritchard the owner and his wife Sophia (Accountant) together with Zaine Pritchard (Managing Director) and Lizelda Pritchard (Exports) all spent enormous time and effort successfully developing international and local markets. At present about 70% of their wines are exported to the UK, Ireland, Holland, Switzerland, Austria, Germany, USA, Japan, Russia and a few others..
Clos Malverne winemaker, IP Smit, makes wine to the same exact elegant style and lower alcohol level wines for the past 10 years. In 1990 IP obtained his BSc degree in agriculture, oenology and viticulture from Stellenbosch University
Clos Malverne was one of the first wineries to introduce Pinotage, as a junior partner into a blend of other noble varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Our flagship wines are the Pinotage Reserve and the Auret – the first Cape blend to be awarded a five star rating in the John Platter Wine Guide (2002). They have been major Cape blend producer since 1995. The Auret not only renders a traditional Cape blend, but also a uniquely South African product. We are thus further investing in the Cape blends and have extended our range.
Clos Malverne is on the Stellenbosch Wine Route and is open to the public for tastings:
Monday to Friday - 10am to 4.30pm • Saturdays - 10am to 1pm
