Overview
More
The head-office of Orange River Cellars is located in Upington, a town in the Northern Cape Province of South Africa. The wine grapes of Orange River Cellars originate from ±850 producers all along the Orange River, also known as the Great Gariep River. These pockets of vineyard land stretch over a distance of more than 300 kilometres between Groblershoop and Blouputs. The terroir (geophysical and micro-climatical) diversity of this unequalled thirstland, translates into the production of cultivar and blended wines of inimitable variation insofar as aromatic and taste are concerned. Orange River Cellars offers an extensive range of dry white, natural sweet and dry red, as well as dessert wines. Visit our Tasting Centre in Upington today!!

En route to Kanoneiland and we decided to pop in for a quick tasting... nice surprise with a really surprising find in the fruity Colombard. They also had no issues with our puppies occupying the outside area and even supplied cold water.

The ORC staff were very helpful in setting up our wine tasting. Quite knowledgeable about the wine. The white wine is really great from the region and price wise quite cheap. Definitely recommend a stope here if driving through and picking up some wine.
