Mountain Ridge Wines is situated in the beautiful Breedekloof Valley. A valley with its own scenic beauty and rugged mountains that offers so much more than meets the eye.
Formerly known as Romansrivier, Mountain Ridge has since 1949 been at the forefront of grape-growing and winemaking in the picturesque landscape between the Boland towns of Worcester and Wolseley.
The past decade has seen Mountain Ridge transform from a dependable co-operative supplying bulk wines to local and international customers to a wine company housing a number of award-winning wine brands as well as being a recognised provider of quality, terroir-specific bulk wines to local and international customers.
The core business is bulk wine, but Romansrivier started bottling wine under the Mountain ridge label in 2004 and later the winery changed its name to Mountain Ridge Wines in 2006. The style of the wine produced changed and more easy drinking wines were on offer together with oak matured red wines. Mountain Ridge is home to the De Liefde, Jail Break, Mountain Ridge and Romansrivier wine ranges.
