Dieu Donne at a glance...
Dieu Donné Vineyards was acquired by the French-Mauritian, Robert Maingard in 1987 in search of his French roots in South Africa.
They inherited a range of blended wines – all made and bottled in the Dieu Donné self-contained winery.
In 1988 a programme of extensive replanting was embarked upon with Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Sauvignon and various Chardonnay clones replacing existing vines.
“Dieu Donné” literally mean “A Gift from God” or “God Given”. What a wonderful discovery! The exquisite mountain vistas viewed from Dieu Donné Vineyards endorses this translation.
Dieu Donné is situated high on the steep south-west facing slopes of the Franschhoek Mountains, which tempers the sun, ensuring slow ripening of the grapes. Thanks to the cool summer conditions and unique soil strata of Hutton and Clovelly soils from weathered granite with a rocky topsoil, the vines do not show excessive vigour, nor do they over-produce. These special soils do not get irrigated, further concentrating the flavours and characters of Dieu Donné’s terroir in the grapes. These exceptional conditions give Dieu Donné wines their special character.
