Welcome to the Stellenbosch Cellar in the Mountain.
Welcome to the characterful Die Bergkelder Wine Centre in Stellenbosch is the proud Home of Fleur Du Cap wines, offering wine lovers one of the most rewarding wine experiences in the Cape.
You will get the chance to taste an inspiring range of award-winning Fleur de Cap wines, all in the charming setting of our famous “Cellar in the Mountain”. Die Bergkelder is tucked under the steep slopes of the historic Papegaaiberg. The name refers to clay pigeons (‘papegaai’ in Dutch), which were shot in commemoration of the birthday of Governor Simon van der Stel, in the late 1700s. (View our Wine Museum)

Crossing a footbridge flanked by lush gardens you will reach the “Cellar in the Mountain”. Here a fascinating short audio-visual presentation on the story behind Die Bergkelder and Fleur du Cap can be viewed. (View our galleries)
