Overhex Wines International

  At Overhex we are blessed with the best: the finest grapes from the country’s foremost wine regions; a state-of-the-art cellar and a team of talented winemakers. It is with this knowledge and in the pride that it brings that our clients may expect a superior portfolio of quality wine brands.



Our 2015 harvest kicked off amid great excitement, with the first grapes arriving at our state-of-the-art cellar on 20 January. This is the earliest in five years and according to the Managing Director of the group, Gert van Wyk, the early ripening can be attributed to a warm August which resulted in early bud break.

At Overhex we have the advantage of selecting our grapes from a wide variety of top vineyards all over the Cape Winelands. Of our total 2015 crop 50% grapes come from the Coastal Regions of Swartland, Franschhoek, Paarl, Wellington, Philadelphia, Napier and Stellenbosch and the balance from irrigated vineyards in Worcester, Breedekloof and Olifants River.

Cultivars picked up till now include Pinotage, Sauvignon Blanc and Chenin Blanc. The majority of these come from our producers in the Coastal Region. 

 “Yields so far are smaller than the past two years, however the grapes are exceptionally healthy,” says an enthusiastic Gert, explaining that the grapes harvested over the past two weeks have small berries with intense flavour and good acidity. All in all a favourable outlook and we look forward to giving you an update on the progress of our wines soon.
