Mellasat Wines

Mellasat Vineyard is a small boutique vineyard located near Paarl in the heart of South Africa’s famous wine lands – just 45 minutes from Cape Town.

The vineyard enjoys a spectacular position under the dramatic Klein Drakenstein mountains together with panoramic views of Paarl and its famous granite domes.

Mellasat Vineyards is the home of the world’s first white Pinotage.  The paradox of this wine is that the eye belies the other senses.  Making white wine from red grapes using South Africa’s unique Pinotage grape, whole bunch pressing prevents the juice from obtaining colour from the skins. This wine has a slightly creamy, nutty character to balance the tropical pineapple fruit and banana flavours.

Hugh and Emma Asher, owners of the Beechwood Hotel, are delighted to have purchased Mellasat vineyard in October 2022. Hugh grew up in South Africa and has always been passionate about wine. He is now very much involved with the production at Mellasat wines and we are very excited to be able to bring these delicious wines for sale in the UK

As well as being able to drink our wines in the Hotel Bar and Restaurant you can also purchase them at Retail prices from Reception by the bottle or case.
