Situated on the famed slopes of the Simonsberg in Stellenbosch, Warwick Wine Estate was purchased in 1964 by Stan and Norma Ratcliffe. Planting the estate to, mostly, Bordeaux varieties, Norma Ratcliffe pioneered varietal Cabernet Franc and she is considered a legend of the 90s Stellenbosch wine landscape. The 1990 was awarded a much-coveted Platter’s 5-star rating. In 2018 Warwick was acquired by Eileses Capital, a San Francisco investment firm.
‘A grand classic.’ Platter’s SA Wine Guide 1993
