The Villiera Cellar
Winemakers Alexander Grier and Nathan Valentine (overseen by Cellar Master Jeff Grier) craft a range of wines characterized by a strong reflection of Villiera's unique terroir and the retention of the distinct aromas and flavours of the different varietals. The Griers have been pioneers in the Cap Classique category and their innovative approach has been evident in other categories as well as in their business. The cellar is IPW certified and HACCP accredited and all Villiera wines are vegan friendly. read more »

The Family
Grier Family: The Grier family is into its fourth generation as a family business. Grandfather Grier arrived in South Africa from the United Kingdom in the 1920’s. He studied at Elsenberg and started a poultry business. The second generation of Griers (Robin and Alexander Snr) took it a step further and were involved in developing County Fair, added value poultry business and planted some vineyard. The third generation (Jeff, Simon and Cathy) were more interested in what to drink with poultry and started a wine business (Villiera) in 1983. read more »
