Food Pairing

Excellent enjoyed on its own or served with steak, lamb, stews and casseroles. If steak, lamb, stews and casseroles are on the menu, a glass of Alto Cabernet Sauvignon shouldn’t be too far out of reach.

The Estate

Alto, situated on the slopes of the Helderberg Mountain in the Stellenbosch district, dates back to 1693 when it was part of a much larger farm called Groenrivier (Green River), granted to a free burgher by Governor Simon van der Stel. In 1919 the owner of the farm, Hennie Malan, sold off half the land to his brother-in-law and set about planting vines on his remaining portion, focusing exclusively on red varieties. He named the smaller farm Alto, a reference to its altitude (some slopes rise as high as 500m above sea level) and his striving for excellence.
