DeMorgenzon is a rapidly rising star of Stellenbosch, the Estate positively bubbling with excitement, energy and ambition. Attention to detail and perfectionist standards have elevated DeMorgenzon's reputation since Hylton and Wendy Applebaum's acquisition of the estate in 2003. Baroque music has been piped into the vineyards all day, every day. The effects of sound and music on plant growth is an intriguing subject, the energy of the sound waves rather than the sounds themselves serving to stimulate and nurture the growing vines.
The vineyards cover the top southern and eastern slopes of Ribbokkop, overlooking the pinnacle of Kanonkop from where a cannon was fired to alert the farms in the region that a ship had put into Table Bay.
DeMorgenzon craft some of the finest blends in the Cape and are not afraid to test strange new ideas, such as playing Baroque music to their vines!
The Maestro red and white blends are superb.
