The BAYEDE! wines are a true Royal Selection Wine range. The BAYEDE! Wine maker Altus le Roux and his team of Wine Masters do the selection for the Royal Selection wines. Each cultivar and range are carefully selected from wine estates and wine farms of the Stellenbosch, Western Cape, Robertson, Franschhoek, Paarl and Coastal wine regions.
- BAYEDE! embrace the biodiversity and uniqueness that our South African terroir offers to select wines that are fit for a King!
- The Royal wine of South Africa that tells a story of 200 years of history!
- The goal of our expert tasting panel is to find the best wine that each region has to offer, from the well-known Stellenbosch region to the Hemel-en-Aarde region where the whales visit our coast every year, to the warm sunny inland regions of , Paarl, Stellenbosch and Swartland that give our wines amazing complex fruit and structure.
- The BAYEDE! wines are adorned by beadwork providing jobs in many rural areas of KZN, Gauteng, Mpumalanga, Gauteng and the Western Cape. There are six different beading groups with up to 500 women who produce beadwork for the Bayede! Royal Wines. This project gives people hope, puts food on tables and creates sustainable jobs.
