Black Pearl wines are made in the vineyard and the focus is on producing limited quantities of high quality grapes. From berry to bottle is a complete hands-on family experience.

We are not planning to substantially increase our production, preferring

to remain diligent in our pursuit of wines of distinction.

The name “Black Pearl” was inspired by the fact that the vineyard is situated on the slopes of Paarl Mountain, and Paarl Rock resembles a black pearl after it has rained. Black pearls also have rarity value. The name of our blend “Oro” comes from the God Oro, King of the Firmament, who gave the black pearl as a gift to the ocean.

“They’re friendly Yanks, are the Nashes of Rhenosterkop Farm, on the Agter-Paarl slopes. “Just give us a call,” they say of their tasting times. They’re equally relaxed about visitors who want to walk on the property, situated in a conservation area with pristine renosterveld and rare flora..

    On the recommendation of our waiter, my husband and I tasted your 2010 Shiraz-Mourvedre at Jiko (Animal Kingdom Lodge, DisneyWorld). What a spectacular wine, both on its own and paired with food. Words like “superb” and “glorious” fall short, so I am going to hunt up more of it to improve my vocabulary. 🙂

    I was in NY this week and had the privilege of tasting your wine. Is it distributed in Dallas, Texas. If not, could I purchase direct from your company?

    Best Regards,

    Please let me introduce myself. Your grandchild is a student of my daughter in Portland, Maine. My daughter suggested that I visit your winery when I travel to Cape Town this week. I am traveling with a friend & she is also interested in visiting your winery. I don’t know if is will be possible, but I wanted to introduce myself & give you a notice that we may be visiting.

    Your daughter-in-law was very enthusiastic about the prospect of our visit. I certainly hope that our schedule permits a visit.
    I look forward to visiting.

    Do you ship to the UK? Is there a wine merchant in the UK I can buy from or can I order from you direct.

  20. Mary Lou, Oliver & I are trying the 2013 Mischeif Maker and were wondering if you have any tasting or background notes, other than what you have on your web site for the wine? You have some info on the 2012 but not the 2013. We want to use it in one of our clubs, so any help would be much appreciated
    Anyway hope all is well your way. Keep up the good work.
    Best wishes,
